The Great Knorthern Knitter Wool Caper!

A generous donor gave up her amazing wool collection - years worth of superior grade wool, much of it spun by her own hands from the finest quality wool.

We set out to get it to the north, where warm woolen things are often the difference between going out and staying in.


We were so excited to send 16 boxes!!


Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.

Well into 2018, The Art For Aid Project continues to supply knitting wool to the vulnerable population of Iqaluit. I have received the most heartfelt responses from people in the far north who are receiving these boxes of wool. We are so grateful to everyone who donates knitting wool to these lovely communities. We'll ship all year long so please feel free to contact us to donate your knitting wool.
