No matter what you need, the barmaids have you covered from head to toe. Face pudding to keep you smiling, Lolo lips keep them kissable, probiotic deodorant for keeping you fresh as a rose, oh for feet’s sake to keep your feet soft and sandal ready, and the Lolo body bar for everything in between. You can find all this - and more! at

Black Trillium Fibres is at Vogue Knitting Live November 3rd through 5th in booth 227. We’ll be showing off great new projects from Kirsten Kapur and Karen Whooley, as well as the fabulous Frosted sweater by Lisa Ross, and of course we’ll have gradients and other hand-dyed goodies.

Whether you're a beginner or an advanced knitter, our kits make your life easier and save you money.
