I’ve recently been telling you about the local yarn stores I visited while in Montana last month. And today I’m continuing on that theme with Polka Dot Sheep, based in Whitefish. Of all the shops I visited, I was most looking forward to this shop because they dye their own yarn! Yes, Aimee owns a LYS and dyes her own yarn under the Polka Dot Sheep brand. How cool is that?
But let me tell you about the shop…
Polka Dot Sheep Yarn is located a few streets off the main downtown shopping area of Whitefish, MT, which is a resort-like ski town north of Flathead Lake. If you’re in town to shop, it’s an easy walk to Polka Dot Sheep and the shop itself is adorable!
If you are traveling with yarny friends, you can even stay above the shop in one of two lovely, modern condos.
When I went, I was greeted by a friendly woman behind the counter who gave me a quick run-down of where everything was located in the store. Since I was there mostly for Polka Dot Sheep yarn, I didn’t stray too far from that section, but this LYS offered other yarns and tools.
A lot of the yarn in this shop is the Polka Dot Sheep brand. I’ll tell you more about Aimee’s dyeing next week, but her yarns are amazing. There was a huge selection of colorways and various bases.
Other brands in the shop include Fully Spun and Malabrigo.
If you’re in northwest Montana, you absolutely have to visit Polka Dot Sheep. Aimee is such a talented dyer and I cannot sing her praises enough. The shop is lovely and you will not leave empty-handed!
