Acrylic Yarn Requested
I have a young friend (35) that has spent many years caring for her mother (stroke victim). They manage to get by on her mother’s monthly check, but that leaves her little to nothing for extras. She has taught herself to crochet, her only outlet in life it seems. I ask that if any of you have unwanted acrylic yarn (Red Heart, Caron Simply Soft, I Love This Yarn, etc.); scraps, partial, or whole skeins, please consider giving them to her. Contact me and I will pay for mailing cost and ask that you send the yarn to her address. She lives in Georgia. I live in South Carolina. I know she would greatly appreciate your gift and it would brighten her life.

I probably have some, but I'm not sure they are full skeins. Let me look and see what I have and see if it's worth sending.

There has been two people to respond and I appreciate so much what you have done for my friend. She was thrilled with the package she received yesterday and I know the other will be just as exciting for her.

Just saw your post. I normally don't look here, because I'm trying to contain my yarn collecting habit.

Does it have to be worsted? I have oodles of sport weight acrylic, but only a little worsted. Would a mixed bag of goodies work?

She should be able to use the sport weight acrylics. It will give her a chance to work with something other than worsted.

Does she still need yarn? I've cleaned out one section of my yarn stash and have several skeins and partial skeins that are acrylic.
