If you are undergoing chemotherapy and want a special order created and sent to you at no cost, we've got you covered! Please email your favorite colors, approximate head size, and your address to: firstname.lastname@example.org We will get your special order made as fast as we can!
Choosing The Right Yarn & Patterns
If you are creating hats for people experiencing the effects of chemotherapy, please be sure to use a yarn from our Approved Yarn List (PDF).
We have spent over a decade working with people undergoing chemo and testing countless yarn brands and product lines to save you time and money -- and to ensure we provide the softest, most comfortable hats to people to people in need. If you use a pattern, you find elsewhere, that's great! Please be sure the pattern is not a lacy one or see-through because most people experiencing treatment-induced hair loss do not want their skin to show through or be exposed to the elements.
