The Yarn Pool is a community driven funding pool to assist low-income knitters in purchasing yarn clubs and sweater amounts of yarn (minimum 6 skeins).
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 here. Indigodragonfly staff will review applications as they come in, and distribute funds. We may have to close applications to the pool temporarily when funds are depleted.
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%.
