About Oysters and Purls:

Working with nature to bring beautiful yarns to knitters and makers alike! Our goal at Oysters and Purls has always been to make beautiful, ethically sourced, minimally processed, and botanically dyed yarns. The search for local yarns has been long, and there have been many ups and downs along the way, but we are so happy and so proud to be where we are today! All our yarns are sourced locally, and spun for us by our friends at Battenkill Fibers. Mary Jeane and her team work closely with small farms within the Hudson Valley to bring us some of the best the US has to offer! Working with small farms and a relatively small mill helps us build relationships that would otherwise be impossible. With the ability to make yarn alongside like-minded individuals, we are able to create a community where we support each other without compromising the livelihood of the animals, or that of our planet. Keeping production local also helps support the local economy, as well as ensuring our greenhouse gas emissions remain as low as possible. This is why it was vital for us to keep the dyeing process within close proximity as well, perhaps another reason we were so thrilled to find Green Matters Natural Dye Company! Located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, it is only a short drive from NYC, assuring all stages of yarn production remain within a close radius!
