Welcome to Woolswap: How it Works

Welcome to Woolswap. Woolswap: swap yarn and make new friends. If you have wool or yarn in your stash seeking a new home or love giving presents, Woolswap is the perfect platform for you. Our registration process opens every second month on the 1st (though please note the occasional date changes) and lasts for two weeks. Once registered, our system matches you with a fellow Woolswapper, and within a week from the registration deadline, you’ll receive their details.

Registration Options and Price

There are two types of registration options, and they are as follows:

  • Single Swap $8
  • Yearly Swap (6 swaps in 12 months) – $35

All prices above are charged in US Dollars

Important Stuff

You’ll have six weeks to organize and prepare your yarn-filled parcel to send to your new friend. Remember, the minimum requirement is sending no less than 100 grams of wool, whether newly purchased or from your stash. However, it’s essential to communicate with your Woolswapper to agree on a suitable swap amount to ensure both parties are delighted.

Feel free to sprinkle some extras in your parcel, such as needles, notebooks, teas, or chocolates—let your creativity run wild! This is your chance to make someone’s day even more magical with thoughtful surprises.

Don’t forget to capture the joy of your wool-swapping experience by taking photos and sharing them on Instagram or Facebook. Tag @woolswap and use the #woolswap hashtag, allowing us to witness and celebrate your yarny adventures on our website and social media platforms.

By joining Woolswap, you’re committing to contact your Woolswapper and send them a delightful parcel of yarny squishiness. Who knows? You might even forge a lifelong friendship within this vibrant yarny community.
