Halos of Hope volunteers distribute crocheted, knitted, and sewn caps to over 450 cancer centers each month. By working with local yarn shops, crochet and knitting guilds, community groups, and the annual STITCHES events, Halos of Hope is able to extend their reach.
The best “chemo caps” are made with love using soft yarn with minimal seaming. Remember that patients will have very sensitive scalps. Chemotherapy has a strong impact on the immune system, so patients will often machine wash and dry anything worn in treatment to remove germs. For all of these reasons, extra care must be taken when choosing yarns. Softness is the most important factor, followed by ease of care.
