One of the four local yarn shops I visited on our trip to Montana was Brave Dog Knits in Columbia Falls. This was such a cute town – and an even cuter yarn store!! Yes, there is a dog in the store – so adorable – hence, the name! And the logo for the shop is so cute that I had to buy a pin – for the first time ever!
Let me tell you more…
Located in downtown Columbia Falls, Brave Dog Knits is a little shop on a street of storefronts. There was plenty of street parking. A cute little dog greeted me upon entering, as did two other ladies, both employees, from what I could tell. When I told them I was front out of town, they pointed me to the Montana yarns, which was super helpful.
This shop is literally overflowing with gorgeous yarn – and samples of yarn knit up!
While I was mostly focused on Montana dyers and wool, this shop had so many great dyers and brands. Some that I saw included Freia Fine Handpaints, Zen Yarn Garden, Ella Rae, Manos del Uruguay, Noro, Koigu, The Fiber Seed, Ancient Arts, Urth Yarns, Feederbrook Farms, Cestari, Brown Sheep, Reywa Yak Yarn, Queensland, Kelbourne Woolens, Juniper Moon.
Some local yarns included Palouse Yarn, Mountain Colors, Dunlaveign Ranch, Earthstar Farms, and Ranching Tradition Fiber. I found wooly yarn from Earthstar Farms that I bought which will be great for a hat or mitts!
Brave Dog Knits is an adorable store that every knitter should visit when in northwest Montana. It’s on the way to West Glacier, so if you’re headed to Glacier National Park, it’s a great place to stop on the way!
