You Can knit Prosthetics for Women who are fighting Breast Cancer!
Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis
for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast.
These soft comfortable lightweight prosthesis are available for free through Knitted Knockers of Canada. They are knit with love by wonderful volunteers all over the country.
Some women find traditional breast prosthetics too expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable and often cannot be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable and beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Knitted Knockers can also be used to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing. Some women prefer to weight their knocker with a pebble or a small stitch in bra to keep them in place. The knitted knocker can also be used in your prosthetic bra or in a post-op camisole as a lightweight choice.
All Tied Up Yarn & Crafts is proud to be a drop off point for Knitted Knockers. We also carry the soft cotton required to produce create the knockers. Why not consider getting involved with this worthy cause?
