Blankets for our Community

 Wool-Tyme collects yarn and blanket donations for the Ottawa area. We collect blankets for children which are distributed under the Project Linus banner and we collect blankets for adults as well. The blankets are given to various charities around Ottawa including CHEO, women’s shelters, charities for the poor and the homeless, and seniors in nursing homes.

Donations (yarn or blankets) must be new material, machine washable and dryable, and be free of odours (e.g. smoke) and pet hair. You can help by making a blanket from your own yarn or by donating yarn to help someone else make a blanket. Free patterns are available at WOOL-TYME or click here for free Project Linus patterns. This is a great way to help the community and feel good about using up those odds and ends. Blankets may be any design and colour combination you like.

You can come and join the volunteers from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of every month (at Wool-Tyme, 190 Colonnade Rd S, Ottawa) to sew on tags, piece together squares, or make blankets.

Thank you to everyone who has donated yarn, or made squares, blankets, or quilts.


Your finished blanket or yarn donation can be dropped off at WOOL-TYME during regular business hours
