Meet the Owner

That's me, Lyss, I own The Black Purl here in Rochester, NY. I'm a wife, mom to two cats, lifelong knitter, and Mini Cooper enthusiast. If you're local, I can't wait to see you in my store!

The Black Purl is located in the Village Gate Mall in Rochester, NY. To get to the store the easiest, park in the rear parking lot and use entrance B. We'll be the second door on your left.

We carry yarn, notions, and patterns, as well as offer space for knitting groups. If you want to be kept up to date on what we're doing, you can find our Facebook and Instagram links at the bottom of the page, or use the sign up button below to be put on a mailing list.

Knit Fast, Die Warm, and remember; Yarn Ho!!!
