future dreams wool with west yorkshire spinners

Be part of something big. This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we have teamed up with the West Yorkshire Spinners for a Makeathon.

Knit a bright and beautiful flower using our Future Dreams wool and follow our simple knit and crochet patterns found on the inside of the yarn band.

You can join in by creating a knitted rose using the wool and be a part of our installation, or join virtually by submitting your pictures and reasons why you are taking part.

There is an opportunity to share a personal experience or dedicate your flower to a loved one that has been touched by breast cancer.

Upload your flowers virtually HERE or post your finished flowers to Future Dreams House, 61 Birkenhead Street, London, WC1H 8BB.

A virtual reveal and flower installation at Future Dreams House will take place in March 2024. We’d love to see your makes so tag @westyorkshirespinners and @futuredreamscharity on Instagram and Facebook and get involved using the hashtag #WYSFutureDreams

Find out more, where to purchase the yarn and how to get involved below.

Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie founders of Future Dreams breast cancer support
Support awareness research

Donate to those touched by BREAST cancer

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone.  Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House.  We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help. Please consider partnering with us or making a donation.
