My name is Bethany and I live in a small, quiet community just 30 minutes from the city (best of both worlds, right?) with my husband, Rhys, and baby-to-be due in November!
I have always been a DIY-er/crafty kind of girl. When I was a little, I used to give our carpet hair cuts to make designs in it (sorry, Mom and Dad!), thankfully I gave up on that "talent" and began making things that didn't cause (too much) damage. From knitting to sewing to embroidery to creating a beautiful DIY wedding (I designed both my own wedding and my sisters), I am always wanting to make things. I blame Pinterest for my obsession. The best things in life are handmade though, am I right?
I think beginning a yarn company that specializes in individually, hand-dyed yarns was just a given for me. I have been obsessed with knitting since I was 17 and I couldn't think of a better business to sink my teeth into than a fiber one. We opened in 2016 with the vision of bringing soft and gentle colorways to the knitting community, pulling from the calm and peace that nature offers.
Since opening, Woolberry Fiber Co. has been committed to providing its customers with high-quality, humanely-sourced wool, dyed with professional low-impact acid dyes. Water is recycled throughout the dye lot to help reduce water waste and all dyes are fully exhausted before any water leaves the dye pots.
Along with helping keep the environment untouched from our dyeing process, I wanted to give back to those who might not have the same opportunities or resources we find abundant here in the United States, so 5% of all purchases goes towards a Well-Building Fund in partnership with Charity Water - an organization committed to providing clean drinking water to remote tribes and villages around the world.
