I’m doing the 2022 Maine Yarn Cruise and rating all the shops. This one is a fave. It’s in a new location, so double check the address if you’ve visited in the past. The new location comes with a bit of parking, which is excellent! The new shop is bright and well lit, with a jaw dropping selection of high end yarn from all over the world. We’ve all seen yarns from Peru and Uruguay of course, but the Cashmere Goat also featured yarns from Italy, the UK, Kathmandu, Norway and Japan (to name a few). The yarns favor a high end market, and have brands and fibers I’ve not seen in my travels (and I’ve hit a LOT of Maine LYS). Moreover, the ladies working there were outgoing and friendly and quick to chat up customers or help with a particular fiber search. I inquired after a specific brand and line and although it wasn’t in stock, they were quick to guide me to something similar. If you love yarn, particularly beautiful, exotic yarn, run to the Cashmere Goat right now! You won’t be sorry!
Nice selection of yarn. Staff are knowledgeable about their products. Nice warm atmosphere. I will be returning.
