Halos for Hope - Charity Crochet - Chemo Caps

Halos for Hope

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.
