Since creating these, the health of one young man in particular is heavy on our hearts.

A protion of the proceeds from Mustachios and Cookie Dusters got to Lung Cancer research in memory of Sean Trank. Sean was told on his 28th Birthday that he has Stage 3b Lung Cancer, inoperable. He fought for 9 months before his last breath.

These are design for Men size 10-12. To alter them into a smaller size, go down a needle size. Womens size 7 (37 UK) work with light fingering and size 1 needles.
