Donate knitting

Important message about donating knitting

Please do not send any knitting to us at Radius Works until further notice.

We have been working on a way to cut down our environmental impact (and your postal costs) for the last month and due to the fuel crisis we have decided to bring this forward. From now on we will be encouraging all knitters to deliver their knitting locally. We are compiling a list of charities that need knitting, and hope to have this up on our website shortly. You can help to make the list as comprehensive as possible by emailing us if you know of places accepting knitting in your local area.

Once we have published this list, always check with the charity before delivering, in case the situation has changed. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to contact these charities on behalf of individual groups/knitters.

If you have recently sent a parcel to us, don’t worry! We still have plenty of stock here so will continue to send out where possible. But please hold on to all future parcels until we have published our list of organisations in need of knitting.

Donate yarn and knitting supplies

Have you got any spare yarn that you won’t be using? We are always on the look out for yarn donations as we can then use them in our work with marginalised sections of society, for example in prisons and women’s refugees, to help set up new groups and keep the needles clacking!

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.

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 support our work:

It costs a lot to send large quantities of yarn and needles around the UK to the knitting groups we support in women’s refuges, prisons and care homes. If you can spare any funds to support this work, it would help greatly.

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