Knitting Wool Retail Outlets In Juneau

We will be spending a Sunday / Monday Morning in Juneau mid June staying at the Baranof Hotel and was wondering if the forum could recommend a couple of retail outlets that stock good quality wool. A short taxi ride from the hotel would be okay.

Are you interested in qiviut yarn- very expensive but oh so soft & so alaskan. I don't know where in southeast they carry it. Anchorage has it.

rainbirdreader you have all bases covered. Thanks for more info saves a lot of time when "locals" can point you in the right direction.

We are soooo looking forward to our trip with American Safari Cruises departing Seattle May 25. For us this will be a once in a lifetime adventure.

There's also a yarn shop in the Mendenhall Mall. But that's in the valley, not downtown, so it would require a bus ride to get to.

The store is called Forget Me Knots. Their phone is listed as 500-9950 if you want to find out what types of yarn they carry.
