Donate goods

Donate knitted items and knitting materials

If you are an individual or group looking to give knitted items to a good cause then have a look at our Projects and Patterns page where you’ll find a range of free patterns to use. You can use any pattern you would like and knit any item you fancy.

Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter and blog to keep up to date with our latest projects and campaigns, or find us on Facebook and Twitter for more regular updates.

Have you got any spare needles, yarn or other knitting related paraphernalia? We are always on the look out for these as we can then use them in our work with marginalised sections of society, for example in prisons, to help set up new groups and keep the needles clacking!

If you have any supplies you can donate please send them to:

Knit For Peace
Radius Works
Back Lane
London NW3 1HL

Please include a knitted goods recording sheet with your parcel so that we know who has sent us what!

Knitting needed:

Having received a lot of knitting over the past few months, we find ourselves very well stocked on some items. Due to storage capacity we are asking not to be sent certain items right now.

We need: blankets in all sizes, mitts and socks in all sizes, adult jumpers/cardigans and knitted toys for babies and children.

We don’t need: hats in all sizes, child jumpers/cardigans, twiddlemuffs, squares and premature baby clothes. Please don’t send us any of these items at the moment.

Got any burning questions? Please check out our Knit for Peace F.A.Q. here.

Looking for your next project? Check out our free patterns here or take a peek at the offerings in our shop here.

Help us with running costs:

It costs a lot to acknowledge, sort and dispatch the donated knitting. We have to rely on donations. We estimate that we are sending £5,000,000 worth of goods each year. We realise that our knitters (we calculate now over 20,000 in the UK) are generous in making and delivering their knitting and we truly appreciate it. If you can spare any funds to help us with the costs of Knit for Peace, it would help even more.

Click the button below to donate, perhaps even setting up a monthly donation of a few pounds to help support our work! Many thanks.
