Did you know that there is a magical place where knitting and dogs coexist in perfect harmony? It’s called Wags and Wool, and it sells both yarn and dog supplies. As a result, it’s my new favorite store. I stopped by on my trip to Maine this month, and even brought back a surprise that one lucky reader will win!
Wags and Wool: Lubec, Maine’s Yarn Shop and Dog Supply Store
I am a knitter and actually credit this hobby for my full-time career as a cold weather accessory designer, so I just about squealed when I learned that there is a store that appealed to both my love of knitting and passion for pups. Is there any doubt that I had to stop by during my trip north?
There are only a few stores in Lubec, the most eastern town in the United States. Wags and Wool (the most eastern yarn store in the United States, by the way) is mere steps from the FDR Memorial Bridge to Canada’s Campobello Island. It’s also mere steps away from the house we rented (read: DANGER! Must resist emptying bank account!).
The main room features a variety of yarns, knitting needles, hand knit items, buttons and other notions. I am currently on a strict “No-Yarn” diet, so I carefully resisted browsing too much.
While the main room features knitting supplies, the second room contains mostly dog items. I spotted locally-made dog treats, West Paw Design beds, Lupine collars and leashes, and toys by companies like Kong and JW Pet. Although Wags and Wool is in a small town, the selection was great and the prices were reasonable.
Oh, I forgot something important from the main room: Tanner.
What’s a yarn/dog shop without a great shop dog? Tanner is a “four-ish” years old, 78-lb Saint Bernard/Lab mix from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, who rescued him from an abusive home in Georgia. He clearly lives the life, soaking up pets and love from everyone who stops by.
I spent far more time petting Tanner than shopping (YOU try to resist that face), but I did pick up some goodies for Henry and for one of you!
