Handspun Hope


Handspun Hope is the project of a Texas Christian nonprofit that employs women at risk in Rwanda to handspin beautiful yarns. In addition to receiving an income, the 120 women, many of whom are widows, orphans or genocide survivors, receive trauma counseling and other support. Yarns are semi-solid Merino from the ministry’s Texas herds mixed with German Angora. Fibers are naturally dyed, mainly with Rwandan plant-based pigments.
