Increasing Breast Cancer Awareness with New WoolFelt® Color Pink October
In October of 2017, National Nonwovens joined the campaign to increase the awareness of breast cancer by introducing WoolFelt® Color Pink October. This limited edition WoolFelt is formulated as TOY002 WoolFelt® product, consisting of a blend of 35% wool and 65% rayon. Pink October (color number 0919) is a proud, bright pink consistent with the color most often associated with this important cause.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
Many who attended the 2017 International Fall Quilt Market in Houston at the end of October have already proudly wore their Pink October as a symbol of support and unity as National Nonwovens passed out Pink October WoolFelt "ribbons" at Sample Spree and in its booth during the exposition. WoolFelt square yards (36" x 36") were also available to purchase with 10% of the proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
To purchase National Nonwovens limited-edition Pink October (wholesale), call our Customer Service Department at 800-333-3469 extension 642, 643 or 645. Individual square yards are also available to purchase at Commonwealth Felt, National Nonwovens online retail site.
