Your voice counts, your vote matters!  We encourage you to knit, crochet, or sew a purple bandanna in support of emPower People, an effort by crafters to mobilize the vote!

Our Purple Magic Yarn Baby colorway is the perfect yarn to knit or crochet this free and simple bandanna pattern which was created by Casapinka and freinds from emPower People.  The yarn is superwash Merino.  We're also providing an option for locally dyed and upcycled 100% cotton fabric to sew a bandanna.

Choose your yarn from the following options:

  • 2 oz fingering (280 yards) $14.00
  • 4 oz fingering (560 Yards) $22.00
  • 8 oz worsted (560 yards) $44.00
  • 24"x24" upcycled 100% cotton fabric $8.00 in four different options

You can use two strands of the fingering or one strand of worsted to make the bandanna.  Our worsted weight is 12 wraps per inch. If you would like us to wind the yarn for you into a cake, just let us know in the Notes section when you check out.

Get a bigger skein and make one or two for a friend.  We are also partnering with Yarn Designs Unlimited and offering hand dyed purple fabric pieces (24"x24") of 100% cotton.  This fabric is upcycled from unwanted fabric and has been overdyed with purple to create a batik finish.

From Casapinka's Ravelry page: 

emPower people is a purple colored craftivism project aimed at uniting crafters to spark conversation, engagement, and action. Wear it when you vote, grocery shop, march, or knit in your socially isolated bedroom. We would love to see a sea of purple to represent unity so please tell your friends, family, knitting groups, or anyone who can knit, crochet, or sew a simple pattern. Knit, crochet, or sew a bandana and show your commitment to vote!  Read more about emPower People here: https://empowerpeople2020.com/ 

At CeCe's Wool, we are taking our commitment to be part of the solution by supporting Fair Fight 2020 with 15% of the proceeds from this listing.  Voter suppression has been and continues to be used against marginalized populations by making it harder for them to vote and participate in elections.  Led by Stacey Abrams, Fair Fight 2020 shines a light on voter suppression efforts across the country and works with local groups to ensure a fair and free election process that allows everyone to cast their vote without facing obstacles.  You can read more about Fair Fight 2020 here:  https://fairfight.com/about-fair-fight/
