Large blankets approx 1.2m x 1.5m are in demand currently, particular in colours that would suit male or females. Rainbow blankets are always a huge hit! If you would rather work on a small project, we are happy to accept squares that are either 15cm x 15cm or 20cm x 20cm and are 8 ply or equal. Please check out our smaller projects below if you would like to be a little more creative. 🙂
During Covid testing these little cuties are given to children to assist with keeping them calm, distracted and smiling during an invasive procedure.

Our Gogsters help provide comfort care to patients. We find that the different textures of wool and different tones of colour are a great source of comfort for patients seeking sensory calm in an overwhelming technical ward.

Twisty Shawls or scarves – These give long term ICU and Aged Care patients with the opportunity to stay warm when they are taken out onto the ICU Balcony in the cooler months.
