Baby Cardigans for Charity

I am collecting hand knitted and crocheted newborn baby cardigans as a mission outreach to UMCOR.
(United Methodist Committee on Relief) http://www.umcor.org

These cardigans must open from the front, and be NEW and UNWASHED.
Please do not include any religious, political or patriotic notes or emblem on the cardigan.

Here are some patterns that will work for the project:

Knitted
Vintage Cardigan (3 mths)
Hooded Cardigan (0-6 mths)
Pretty Cardigan (0-6 mths)
Check Stitch Cardigan (0-6 mths)
Sweet Matinee Cardigan (0-3 mths)
Simple Baby Jacket (3-6 mths)

Crocheted
Cluster Yoke Cardigan (3 mths)
Sweet Baby Hoodie (6 mths)
Boys Cardigan (6 mths)
Daisy Chain Cardigan (6 mths)
Lacy Cardigan (6 mths)

If you would like to send a cardigan for this need, please mail it to:

UMW Layette Kit Cardigan
c/o Memorial UMC
4012 Central Ave
Charlotte, NC 28205

If possible, protect the cardigan from damage by sealing it in a new gallon sized Ziploc bag before placing it in the mailing envelope. This bag will be used for an additional mission outreach project.

Thank you for your help!

Are there any yarn restrictions?

Is wool okay if it's labeled as such? Must it be machine wash and dry?

There are no yarn restrictions. Anything goes, as long as it's comfy and warm.
