LuLu's Profile

About

Knitting and crocheting for me is a labor of absolute love that I never ever tire of. I always have some yarn with me wherever I go. So began the adventure that is LuLu & Loie Handmade Scarves, Hats & Gloves. Since 2009 I've been making interesting, edgy and creative knit/crochet outerwear accessories for people who love a piece with a lot of personality, and are looking for garments that they just can't find elsewhere. It's that "Man, if I could only find this one thing! I should make it myself" kind of inspiration I thrive on.

My handmade wraps, hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, ponchos, cowls and snoods are meticulously constructed out of superfine heathered Peruvian Highland Wools (absolutely gorgeous in their coloring), wool/acrylic blends and ultra-soft Alpaca (a fiber softer than cashmere). I also work with mills in South America making specialty yarns for my pieces that are not available…

Knitting and crocheting for me is a labor of absolute love that I never ever tire of. I always have some yarn with me wherever I go. So began the adventure that is LuLu & Loie Handmade Scarves, Hats & Gloves. Since 2009 I've been making interesting, edgy and creative knit/crochet outerwear accessories for people who love a piece with a lot of personality, and are looking for garments that they just can't find elsewhere. It's that "Man, if I could only find this one thing! I should make it myself" kind of inspiration I thrive on.

My handmade wraps, hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, ponchos, cowls and snoods are meticulously constructed out of superfine heathered Peruvian Highland Wools (absolutely gorgeous in their coloring), wool/acrylic blends and ultra-soft Alpaca (a fiber softer than cashmere). I also work with mills in South America making specialty yarns for my pieces that are not available to anyone else, in multiple colors and yarn weights. I feel lucky and humbled to be a knitwear designer and be able to make a living at it. I love what I do - handmaking beautiful accessories for people who love functional, interesting and beautiful clothing. Dare to set yourself apart!

My styles are in the DIY spirit, dynamic to wear, and not often the type of scarves, hats and gloves that are seen in the regular marketplace, even here on ETSY. I go to great lengths to use the finest fibers available and handcraft every single piece with care and an emphasis on style - a little something that sets you a part - a statement piece that will have your friends saying, "WHERE DID YOU GET THAT??"

In addition to my cozy autumn/winter accessories, I offer raw yarn of my own design, and am proud to be bringing "Knit Kits" to my shop, which are an "all-in-one" kit that comes in an attractive knitting LuLu & Loie tote bag that includes yarn, knitting and darning needles, and patterns for all of you who are interested in knitting your own LuLu & Loie pieces.

Wrapping yourself up in one of our pieces is like travelling to another world. Enjoy!
