OPERATION WINTER WARMTH
In order to help keep our troops warm and to bring a little bit of home to them.
We make and send, October thru March, helmet liners, gaiters, and slippers.
THINGS TO KNOW:
WE ONLY SHIP From October through February - for the winter items but many group members make them all year round and store them until October mailings.
HELMET LINERS AND GAITERS:
Black or Sage green colored yarn ONLY for helmet liners and gaiters!
Wool yarn ONLY can be used for gaiters and helmet liners. This is to help our service members if they are burned. Acrylic will burn into their skin - wool will not.
No brims on helmet liners
Helmet Liner measures 21 to 22 inches in circumference
and 7 to 7 1/4 inches from the top of the cap to the bottom or last row.
Any color yarn for slippers, remember though you are making for mostly men!
Slippers made MUST have a cuff on top, for safety reasons.
