Betty & Beth Yarns: Named for our mothers’ Betty and Beth, our yarns are hand dyed in small batches using a variety of natural dye stuff. Much of our yarn is dyed at our family cabin in Montana or in the foothills of California at our studio.
The dye that we use is most frequently extracted from local and sustainable plants. Sage brush, goldenrod, onion skins, dandelion and rabbit’s brush all can add to the color pallet. We have patiently collected lichen and moss from trees scheduled to be harvested. We’ve grown pants for their dye properties including zinnia, marigold, coreopsis, sunflowers (black Hopi), hollyhock and madder.
The yarns are all natural fibers.
