About

 

 Our yarns are lovingly curated by Little Brother and Big Sister, dyed in a beautiful dye house in Maine and then shipped to you from our home in Woodinville, WA. We bring you sophisticated color palettes that are as delicious to the eye as they are to knit. Happy knitting!

It’s so interesting how quotes can ring true at just the right time in our lives and leave you feeling like you're capable of taking on the world. Looking back I just needed to hear the words, “Sometimes you have to stop thinking so much and go where your heart takes you.” I had worked in a profession that I no longer enjoyed for more than a decade and it had worn my soul thin. Knitting was and to this day is what keeps me excited and helps my mind feel alive. The stitches that run through my fingers connect me to what I want most, to work with my hands. Isn’t it funny how we come full circle and find our way to what inspires us and helps us thrive? In 2013 I decided it was my time to make a shift. I gave notice at that job that didn’t make sense to me anymore, right around the same time I was asked to join a team of some the most beautiful, loving, caring women I have ever met at Tolt Yarn and Wool in Carnation, WA, and I opened a door to what has been a beautiful journey into starting my own yarn brand. I couldn’t have done any of this without the love and support of my family, and I’m proud to say that every skein that we sell has been influenced in some small way by every single one of my family members… our mother has been our rock and all around consultant, our father has built and created by hand every custom display piece that we use when showcasing our yarns, my husband is our biggest supporter and tech guy who without, our online existence wouldn’t be possible, my daughter has so willingly given her time to live with the torture of her mother’s demands for modeling, our Jane, my brother’s girlfriend, who has been with us from the beginning, working and doing all sorts of odds and ends to help maintain sanity in our household, and my dear brother, who has not only decided to be my business partner, but is my largest inspiration for making a brand and line of yarns that I can be proud of. I hope that you enjoy our yarns and that they bring a little bit of happiness to your day while you are working with your hands. -Veronika, Big Sister

 

Life is always changing for me. It seems I never know what’s around the next bend. I love to embrace adventure and I feel like this company is the essence of everything that is me. My big sister came to me back in October 2013 and told me she had quit her awful job and wanted to pursue her passion in knitting. The next thing she asked would change everything, “I’m thinking yarn. But I need help… You can either be an employee and I’ll pay you a small wage or be my partner and wait a long time to receive your first paycheck?” Without even blinking an eye, I told her I wanted to be her partner! My passion has always been business, a dream of mine to own a company and build it from the ground up. At the time I was headed toward a degree in engineering. I felt displaced, like any college student that had absolutely no idea what they were put on this earth to do. I immediately switched from engineering to business and have been pushing for a degree ever since and I couldn’t be more happy with my decision. Of course a business in yarn never seemed suitable for a person that seeks adrenaline in sports and the outdoors, but it’s a perfect fit for me. Ve brings her creativity and passion and I bring a certain edge and power. Our two sides just seem to click. Together we have built a company that embodies our characters into one. Of course none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for our lovely Burda & Jobe family. Every member of this family has held a position in this company. From making deadlines to many long nights, this is to the family that made it possible. YOTH Yarns would not exist without their help. There have been countless long and narrow roads that have paved the way. It’s a journey and I still don’t know what’s around the next bend. -Danny, Little Brother
