Mittens for Cold Hands 2018 Spun Ann Arbor Local Yarn Shop WEB BANNER layers.jpg

Spun is partnering with local community organizer Andrea Brush to help deliver warm handmade hats, mittens, and scarves to people in our community. 

Andrea founded Mittens for Cold Hands in 2016, partnering with Spun to help the men of the Detroit Rescue Mission stay warm in the winter months. Last year, Andrea expanded the program to include scarves and hats for men, women, and children, both in Detroit and more locally. We are happy to be working with her again! To help you get started, Spun has a limited amount of yarn to give away to crafters (first come, first served), or you can use yarn from your stash. All donations must be made from warm, water-resistant, 100% wool, and you can choose any pattern you desire. (Take a look at Tin Can Knits' World's Simplest Mittens for a great basic pattern!) Donated items should be dropped off at Spun no later than December 22, 2018, for delivery by Christmas Eve.
