    The Magic Yarn Project is the original and the largest nonprofit crafting character wigs for children with medical hair loss. Our mission is to create magic in the lives of children battling cancer, and to inspire volunteerism.

    Chemotherapy treatments often leave young scalps too sensitive for traditional wigs. Our yarn wigs are comfy, soft, and warm! Magic Yarn wigs are inspired by beloved Disney characters, and invite children back to the world of imagination and daydreaming.

    Virtual volunteer opportunities include:

    • Making beanies for the yarn "hair" to be attached to
    • Making full yarn wigs
