Wool Couture has caring and kindness at its core. Founder and owner, Claire Gelder, has always turned to her passion of knitting and crafts as not only a much-loved pastime, but also for being very therapeutic in helping with her depression. Claire is a passionate advocate for embracing and enjoying craft as therapy, and this commitment is part of Wool Couture’s DNA and what makes it so rewarding to be a part of spreading the uplifting love of all things yarn and crafting.
But we don’t want to stop here! We believe that craft and kindness go hand in hand, and that’s why we are proud to announce the Wool Couture Kind & Care Project. This an opportunity to connect with other people across the UK and indeed all over the world by sharing your love of crafts! What’s not to love?
How it works
You will be partnered with another person and you’ll send them a care package with a budget of £10. Part of your parcel must include a craft activity for your recipient partner to enjoy. It’s just like paying it forward – but with crafting kindness! And, in turn, you will also receive the same.
The aim is to spread kindness to others – you never know what an uplifting care package can make to someone’s day – chat to one another, connect, show that you care.
How can you participate?
In your email to us, please stipulate whether you are prepared to post a parcel internationally, or within your country only.
