October is here – Breast Cancer Awareness month! It’s important to spread awareness of breast cancer, which is always affecting the most beloved women, our friends and family. (It’s also a nice reminder that you aren’t alone.)
Furls Fiberarts is repeating (or re-pinking) the success of their pink crochet hook sales last year by “releasing a limited run of 350 Pink Ivory Alpha Series hooks and giving 1/3 of our proceeds to support Breast Cancer research and care,” according to an email blast.
Last year, these hooks sold out in just 48 hours, so people definitely see the value of the cause! Furls Ivory released 250 last year, so your chances of grabbing a pair for yourself are better this year.
In case the ivory thing is freaking you out, fret not. It’s not that kind of ivory – pink ivory is the only naturally pink wood in the world. So these crochet hooks are made from stunning, royalty-worthy wood and no elephants are harmed in the making! 🙂
In the spirit of thinking pink, we’re giving away 10 Candy Shop Crochet Hooks in various colors and sizes, 1 Bubblegum Yarn Bowl and Stand, and 1 skein of Ice Yarn to one lucky winner.
The deadline to enter is October 23. Enter today!
