Spring Clean While Helping Others: Donating Your Yarn

Spring cleaning shouldn’t be limited to laundering curtains and cleaning windows. You’ve let that yarn pile up for years, and you barely know what’s in your knitting or crochet stash. Why not include donating yarn as part of your spring cleaning this year?

Here are a few tips for donating yarn, plus ideas for how to organize the yarn you plan to keep.

Donating yarn

There are plenty of places that would love to benefit from your destashing and spring cleaning. I’ve already covered how to donate your knitted and crochet items to charity, and in fact, a lot of those same places can benefit from your yarn, too! Here are a few ideas:

Schools

A lot of schools don’t budget for art supplies, so donating yarn to an art class is a great idea. Some schools also sponsor after-school programs that include knitting and crochet groups, so your yarn could even benefit those kids.

Art centers

From art galleries to art education nonprofits, there are plenty of organizations out there who host art events. Even if you’re just donating an inexpensive acrylic, there’s someone who can benefit. Call nonprofits and art centers in your town to see if they need yarn donations, then load up a rainbow of colors and drop it off!

Nursing homes

Many nursing homes host craft nights for their residents. Since not all nursing home residents are fortunate enough to have family who can bring them these supplies, yarn donations are especially helpful. A knitter or crocheter would be happy to turn that yarn you’re not using into something beautiful.

Yarn scrap organizer

What to do with extra yarn

The ideal situation when you’re finishing a project is to finish with just enough yarn left. But, please, when has that ever happened? If you end up with extra yarn, there are a few things you can do with it:

Stash it

If you think you have a use for the yarn in the future, add it to your stash. As part of my spring cleaning this year, I made a yarn stash organizer (pictured above). I recycled cereal boxes into yarn bobbins, then wrapped my scrap yarn around them. I secured each one to a wire clothesline using clothespins with decorative washi tape stuck to them. Now I can clearly see which yarns are in my stash, plus I have an awesome wall hanging for my craft room!

Use it

There are plenty of small projects out there that only require yarn scraps rather than full skeins. Check out a couple of our favorite ideas for using up your yarn scraps, including wall art and jewelry.

Return or exchange it

Save your receipts! If the skein is untouched, most local yarn stores will accept returns or exchanges. Check your local yarn store’s policy to see if a return or exchange will be possible when buying your yarn.

Sell it

If you can’t return your extra yarn, why not sell it online? Be sure to include the dye lot. You never know when another knitter might need that exact skein to finish a project.

Trade it

Take the extra skeins to your knitting group and offer a trade. Have your eye on something in your friend’s stash? Suggest a trade. It never hurts to ask!

Where do you donate yarn that you aren’t going to use? Is organizing craft supplies part of your spring cleaning this year?

Hi I could really use some yarn if anyone is getting rid of any… I can’t afford any new stuff and regularly check the second hand store in my small town but there’s never any actual good crochet or knitting yarn; I would love love love some chunky big yarn! My address is Rachael MacKay 2670 auto road SE salmon arm British Columbia Canada v1e2h4 my husband won’t allow me to spend any money on new yarns or craft supply so I almost want to cry when I read about or see beautiful projects that I know i could make too but will never ever be able to afford; as well as the fact that I have borderline personality disorder and am just coming up into 1 year clean off heroin; and knitting and crocheting takes my mind off everything and is really a good way for me to ground myself… especially when I am upset or thinking about traumatic experiences from my childhood and time on the street as a sex trade worker. When I am working with my hands on something simple even like a scarf or blanket… I let myself feel okay.

Hi Rachael,

It’s great to know that crafting items using your hands and yarn is helping you to overcome past traumas. Are you still needing yarn donations? I have a lot of older acrylic yarn that I can send. I also have a skein or two of some nicer stuff from a fancy yarn shop that closed in my town.
Do you want a particular yarn weight, like Worsted, Bulky, Fingering, or Lace?

Georgia

I have a stash of different yarns, from bulky to lace. Do you still want or need some? I would be glad to. send it to you.

Hi Sandy!
I came across your post and figured I would reach out to you in case your yarn was still available. I live in Ft. Campbell/Clarkville. We knit and crochet blankets to donate to veterans here in our area. If you still have yarn available, that would be amazing! It doesn’t matter what color or type, everything will be put to use. Even if we don’t have enough for a blanket, we recycle and make smaller projects like hats and long socks.
Thanks so much in advance!

Fyi, the pattern is for the yarn, so all that’s needed is the correct needles for gauge on the pattern.

I don’t know if anyone is able to help or not, but I was recently hurt in an accident about a year ago which left me with little mobility remaining in my arms. Crocheting pretty much has become my life and sadly living in the town I do there aren’t many job opportunities for someone who cannot use their arms.
The crocheting gives me something I can do to keep some mobility. And it helps me with coping with the depression as well. I have created an online storefront on mercari called CrochettoCope.

The only thing is, I don’t have the financial means to purchase yarn (I know that sounds like an excuse but even cheap 3.00 yarn is out of my price range.)

If anyone is able to and willing to donate yarn I’d really appreciate the kindness.

Mary, I am looking for a few scarves to include in my yarn bombing project (I just posted today). When the project is complete, the scarves will be available for wearing ๐Ÿ˜€ We are planning to do lots of fun things with our yarn bombing, including making wearable art.

I have lots of yarn to donate. I prefer giving it to someone who will use it. I am sewing more and knitting less. Yarn needs to be used. I have all kinds.

M. Senters,

I’m sorry for not getting back to you sooner. My charity is The Warming Project. It’s just me. I crochet winter wear for the less fortunate / homeless men, women and children in my area. Your yarn would be nice and warm for our WI winters!

Hello!! I am looking for CREATIVE MOMS ๐Ÿ˜€

I am a 40-something Indiana Mom, and I am working with a couple of local moms creating a YARN BOMBING project supporting MOTHERING in central Indiana. We would love donations of* *yarn* OR *completed pieces* to help us finish designing, assembling, and installing the project much sooner ๐Ÿ˜€

Email proudmama@gmail.com

Here is a list of what we need to complete the project:

Single crochet or any stitch ๐Ÿ˜€
– acrylic yarn in WHITE and BLACK to use to assemble the colorful pieces
– acrylic yarn in BRIGHT colors and PURPLES
– 5×5 inch or smaller Adornments that support MOTHERING, such as HEARTS, using BRIGHT COLORS(hot pink, bright purple, turquoise, or coordinating colors)
– crocheted or knitted 7×7 inch squares
– crocheted or knitted 7×36 inch rectangles

SUGGESTED BASIC PATTERN FOR COMPLETED YARN BOMBING PIECES:

CROCHET HOOK SIZE “M” for Mothering
Row 1: Chain 21, one turning chain
Row 2 – ? Repeat until you get a square or rectangle and tie off, leave a long tail if you have it.
