Visiting Loopy Knit Crochet in Missoula, Montana

On the way to a week of vacation in Glacier National Park I stopped in Missoula, Montana at an LYS called Loopy Knit/Crochet which is located down town at 115 W. Front Street.

My first impression from the outside was a nice, traditional, historic commercial building. Stepping inside, however, I found myself in a contemporary, nicely arranged, fiber wonderland.

I LOVE bright colors and so was delighted to see that they have a broad range of colors in all the types of yarn they carry. I was also happy to see that they carry a wide range of fibers other than sheep wool. Being allergic to wool, it's always nice to have a wide selection available in an LYS.

The back of the store is spacious and has a large table in the middle of it for stitchers to gather and work together for classes or just camaradarie. As you can see, there were a few ladies there that morning working on projects.

The staff were very friendly with just enough attention to let me browse but ready to answer questions or assist if I needed it.

I highly recommend a visit to Loopy Knit/Crochet if you happen to be in Missoula.
