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:

The colder weather has brought a flurry of requests for blankets and warm clothes.
Especially needed are socks (all sizes) mittens or gloves, hats (grown up sizes mostly for men) adult sweaters or cardigans, slipovers.
Children’s clothes (from ages 2 to 14) – jumpers, cardigans, ponchos all sizes, hats.
large (80×90”/200x230cm or 70×90”/180x230cm),
medium (60×70”/150x180cm or 50×70”/130x180cm),
lap blankets (45×45”/115x115cm)
Toys – we have a special request for black or brown faced dolls, otherwise teddies and animals are ok. 

WHAT WE DONT NEED at this time are twiddle muffs – because the London ambulance service aren’t taking them during the pandemic. And we don’t need premature baby items, they are very nice and quick to knit but we must have enough to meet requests for the next 5 years.
We don’t need twiddle muffs and premature baby clothing at the moment.

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.
