Lion Brand Yarns
Lion Brand Yarns® donated proceeds of on-line yarn sales on Giving Tuesday in November 2018. It also presented Project Knitwell with a generous cash donation in December 2015 in connection with the publication of Project Knitwell Presents the Comfort of Knitting. This unique how-to-knit book focuses on helping families and caregivers alleviate stresses such as anxiety, sadness, and fatigue, and contains 7 basic patterns. Since 2016, Lion Brand Yarns® has provided Project Knitwell with hundreds of skeins of yarn to be used in starter kits and project kits for program participants.

Knitter’s Pride generously donates knitting needles for our Learn to Knit kits. The needles are made from bamboo grown and cultivated in Japan. They are soft to touch, yet extremely strong, with perfectly tapered points. Our Learn to Knit students are lucky to have these wonderful needles for their first knitting experience. Thank you Knitter’s Pride!
Spincycle Yarns wool is grown, processed, dyed, and spun in the USA. Their Bellingham, WA mill and dye house is well known for the high quality, beautiful yarn they distribute. Project Knitwell is proud to receive a variety of this yarn to share with our new and experienced knitters facing challenges. The color selection and quality wool brings joy to our participants!
In September 2018, Blackbaud awarded Project Knitwell a Community Matters Grant in support of its operations.
