The Yarn Pool

What is the Yarn Pool?
The Yarn Pool is a pot of money set aside to help make our yarn clubs and sweater quantities of our yarn more affordable to those with lower incomes.

Who gets the funding?
Any low-income knitter who wishes to purchase a Club or large sweater amount (minimum 6 skeins) can apply for funding. Indigodragonfly staff will review applications as they come in, and distribute funds.

How much funding?
Bursaries range from 25-75% of the retail price of the Club or sweater amount. We want to help as many people as possible, so amounts offered are done so with that in mind. For example, if we have 1 applicant, and enough in the fund, we will offer a 75% bursary; if we have 10 applicants, and offering 25% bursaries means we can help all of them, then we will offer 25%.

I would like to contribute. How do I do so?
Thank you. We truly believe that the yarn community deserves to be accessible to everyone and any little contribution helps. If you'd like to donate to the fund, you can do so here.

I have other questions.
Not a problem. For more information, email us at
