knitted knocker: knitted breast prosthesis for those who have had mastectomy's

Knitted Knockers

Hand knit breast prosthesis for women who have had mastectomies and other similar procedures. 

These "knockers" are donated free to people who request them through their website to wear in place of the heavy, expensive, and uncomfortable traditional prosthesis available to them. 

The Speckled Sheep is a drop off location for Knitted Knockers. We sell kits and have a supply of patterns available. 

The most requested items are "C-Cup" sizes and larger in nude colors.

Project Linus

Project Linus is a non profit organization who provides homemade blankets to children ages 0-18 in need. 

They collect hand made blankets that are new, washable, smoke-free, pet hair and pin free. These blankets may be knit or sewn. 

If you want to contribute but do not knit or sew, they also accept materials that are distributed to those with time to make blankets. 

The Speckled Sheep is a drop off point and accepts blankets and materials year round.
