‘Strands of Magic’: Alaska moms get national recognition for yarn wigs

PALMER — From a one-car garage in a tiny triplex, Holly Christensen helps run a worldwide wig-making nonprofit that tries to lift the spirits of kids with cancer.

The Magic Yarn Project has gotten so big it's bumping up against practical concerns like time and money.

Since Christensen and partner Bree Hitchcock founded the small nonprofit in 2015, nearly 6,000 yarn wigs have made it to children who lost their hair to chemotherapy throughout the United States and in 34 countries.
