Lili Loops

Staten Island
Staten Island based Lili Loops is a woman-owned small business that produces one-of-a-kind hand dyed yarns for knitting and crocheting. The founder, Lisa Chernyak, taught herself to knit and crochet after her two sons were diagnosed with autism, and she began to spending lots of time waiting in the car while they were at therapy. Lisa’s love for color sparked while she was a student at the New York School of Interior Design, and her interest in developing a bounty of color combinations has continued to blossom since.
Shop Lili Loops hand dyed yarns at their website, and be sure to check out their YouTube channel for beginner knitting tutorials.
