Who we Are
Knotty Lamb is an elegant yarn shop located in the delightful charming downtown of Forest Grove, which is in the heart of Oregon’s wine country. We are a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Portland and a perfect stop on the way to the Oregon Coast.
Owner, Karen Rhyne opened its doors in August 2016, with the goal of creating a warm and inviting safe space for all, while providing exceptional customer service. We welcome all people of race, genders, ages, sexual orientation and those who don’t associate with these categories. We do not tolerate any exclusivity of any kind.
At Knotty Lamb our passion is independent designers and dyers and we feature a wonderful selection of yarns that range from indie darlings like Magpie Fibers, YOTH, Life in the Long Grass, Long Dog Yarns, Barnyard Knits, Tôt le Matin, Biches & Bûches, Retrosaria, Lambstrings, Hello Stella Fibers and House Of A La Mode, to yarn-lover favorites like Berroco, Swans Island, Shibui, The Fibre Co., Madelinetosh and Malabrigo, plus so many more!
From knitting to crochet to spinning we offer numerous classes to keep you crafting, or design your own class with a private lesson, we are here to help you learn and expand your skill-set. With 1600 square feet filled with wonderful natural light, we encourage you to spend your afternoon on our comfy couch and chairs, crafting away with old friends and making new ones.
