Q: Do yarn donations have to be in a particular state? Mine are more or less wound by hand into balls.
A: Hand wound into balls sounds wonderful. The charities at WWKiP Toronto Edition will be grateful for whatever you have, wound or not. Sistering and StreetKnit are happy with small amounts. They are very inventive at using up every scrap of yarn.
Sistering is using the yarn to weave place mats — novelty yarns work well as accents. Synthetics are great for making easy-care objects.
