About Us

YarnScout is your source for yarn and tools for knitting, crochet and other fiber arts. Our website features a large selection of popular and hard to find yarns from all over the world. Please use us as a resource when planning your next project; we are happy to help by email with yarn substitution, color selection and more. 

 Our retail shop is located in Bozeman, Montana and is open for visitors. Because we have a huge inventory of yarn, we cannot possibly display it all! As a result, the shop is arranged a bit differently than other yarn shops; think of it as a supply house (like the auto parts store or the electrical supply shop) where someone is available at the counter to answer questions, give advice, and get what you need from the warehouse. We display just one ball of each color of yarn in the shop and the rest is stored in our back room. We encourage you to browse our selection online and then come in with an idea of what you'd like to see!

OPEN Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays 1pm-5pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm

We have to limit our retail hours in order to serve both our busy online and local customers so that we can always be sure to have a knowledgeable person staffing the shop. However, we can also schedule an appointment if those hours don't meet your needs; feel free to contact us for more information.
