They are made of a combination of high quality fibers, are colored with professional dyes and even include a size US19 circular needle so you can get started right away. We will update you by email 24 hours before posting on Social media. We will also be posting updates on yarns as we add them to our TinkKnit Shop. We have a variety of yarn shop quality brands in our inventory. Your support is greatly appreciated and funds our mission.

Stop by our booth at the NJ Sheep and Wool Festival!

Take a rest and sit with us at the NJ Sheep and Wool Festival on Saturday, September 7th and Sunday, September 8th and learn about our mission. We will have several shrugs on needles if you’d like to stitch for a while and donate a few minutes of your day to our cause.


Our hand dyed “Hugs through Shrugs Kit in a Kakes” contain everything you need to make a one of a kind shrug for yourself or someone you love! Our pattern is compatable with any yarn that gets you in our gauge range. Once you make one, you might want to consider joining our community of support and start “Sending Hugs through Shrugs” to moms of critically ill hospitalized children.


All sales fully fund the Stay Strong Tote foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization, providing care packages to Child Life Specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC, several NJ children’s hospitals, NYU Langone/Brooklyn and Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, RI.
