      Lily Lake Knits

      Lily Lake Knits is luxury handcrafted pure wool knits company owned and operated by Jenny Fennell. When purchasing from Lily Lake you're supporting a small one person business whose main focus is to provide quality handmade items that will be loved and last for seasons to come.

      Named for Lily Lake located in Mira Mhór [Grand Mira; Gaelic], nestled on the island of Cape Breton on the east coast of Canada. The surrounding acres of Lily Lake have been kept in Jenny's family for generations and farmed by her loved ones. With such rich family history, Lily Lake is a truly amazing piece of land. There is an abundance of woods and wildlife. With nothing but the sound of owls, frogs and the howls of coyotes off in the distance, you feel like you've stepped back in time. For these reasons Lily Lake is very near and dear to Jenny's heart and why She chose this name to represent her handcrafted products.

      When wearing Lily Lake Knits Jenny hopes to evoke nostalgia in the wearer for camping by a lake, a hike through rolling hills or the simple feeling of home.
