Many seafarers from tropical climates do not have warm clothing, and they suffer in our bitter North Atlantic winters. Hand-made scarves and hats not only offer warmth and comfort, but they also represent a gift of kindness from someone who cares enough to invest their time and creativity.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • Seafarers work hard and get dirty!
    • Please use machine-washable yarn in dark colors
  • Their job can be dangerous!
    • Simple patterns are best.
    • Avoid tassels, pom-poms, and fringe, which can get in the way and even create a safety hazard.
