Handspun Hope provides work-based solutions in order to restore dignity and independence to those struggling with poverty. Our goal is to support them as they achieve economic self-sufficiency so they may become leaders of change within their own families and communities. By providing employment, education, and encouragement to women, many of whom are caring for multiple children, we are able to support them as they break the poverty cycle for future generations. This is the key. This is how lives are changed_ by empowering women to take control of their futures.

The women in Rwanda, who work for Handspun Hope, create high-quality skeins of yarn and hand-knit luxury garments using the wool from our own flock of Merino sheep and German Angora rabbits. We also offer yarn made from Ethiopian cotton, hand spun on
drop spindles by a women’s cooperative in Ethiopia. The yarn is hand dyed using natural dyes that are extracted primarily from native Rwandan plants such as cosmos petals, eucalyptus bark, onion skins and avocado pits. Handspun Hope is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation (FTF), an establishment that strengthens and promotes North American organizations fully committed to fair trade principles and sustainable training partnerships by creating opportunities to alleviate poverty. Our initiative has been fully vetted and found to be in complete compliance with the strict standards held by the FF.
The women employed byHandspunHope receive above-average salaries, a safe working environment, healthcare, and access to daily group and individual trauma counseling as well as other benefits.

    The Sukwa Saddle Blankets are totally beautiful. The vibrant colors and intricate patterns add a touch of elegance to my equestrian gear. Not only is it visually appealing, but the blanket’s high-quality material ensures durability and comfort for my horse. The Sukwa Blankets truly combines style and functionality flawlessly. Highly recommended!
