ks... I sent a large parcel of metal knitting needles from Australia to JayBay Recycling Project in South Africa and they arrived no problem

Thank you Susan. 

Does anyone know if we can send a cheque every month to Rhonda instead of using pay-pal?.

Are 100% wool hand warmers itchy? I figured I would use it for the squares but I wasn't sure about the hand warmers. Thanks.

It all depends on the wool, Denise. I have some 100% merino from Italy that is rather itchy and also have some 100% merino from Peru that is unbelievably soft. I guess you just have to feel the skein against your own skin and decide.

Thanks. I don't have the yarn yet. I was going to get some more expensive stuff for hand warmers because it's prettier. I'll have to decide.
Hi. Two questions. What is the current preference: that we send squares OR sewn-up blankets? Also.... should we wash the squares/blankets before we send them, if they have been exposed to dust, pets etc (I mean, sitting on open shelves :) - do the kids have comprised immune systems? (because of HIV) Thank you!

Hi Aprile, Ronda doesn't have a preference but if you are sending blankets please mark "squares" on the declaration.  Technically they are squares....just put together :-)

Whether you wash or not depends upon you.  Would you use the squares/blankets yourself ?  If not, then wash.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Linda. I hate sewing up if I don’t have to.... it’s just that i saw an old post where the local ladies were inundated with squares to sew up.... obviously that situation has resolved :) No I wouldn’t wash the squares for my own use, but a friend was horrified that I’d send them to kids with HIV without washing them, so I felt really bad about the squares I’d already sent...
