location: On Factory Street in Montgomery, NY. Right off Route 17K.
My Store Spotlight series usually profiles great LYSs with a friendly atmosphere and a beautiful selection of colorful yarn.
Not today. Montgomery Mills has no atmosphere and all of the yarn is white… but it’s a fabulous shop!
I stumbled across Montgomery Mills as I was driving and saw this sign:
How can you resist that sort of temptation? I turned off the road, and discovered a wonderland of yarn!
All of the yarn is undyed skeins (or ‘blanks’). Silk, cotton, wool, alpaca… you name it, the fiber is here.
I chatted with a fellow designer about my discovery, and she hinted that I may have found the ‘secret supply shop’ of a number of indie dyers. Whoa! Well, the secret’s out!
Montgomery Mills doesn’t have a website, but some sleuthing unearthed a Wikipedia entry about the Mill’s former life. No longer processing fiber or manufacturing textiles, it’s just a fabulous yarn shop!
So, if you happen by Montgomery, NY (which you might be if you go to Rhinebeck!), then definitely have a look at the Montgomery Mills retail shop!
