Fiber folk: It’s hard to put into words just how great the family behind Yarn on the House, or YOTH yarns is. Earlier this year I spent an evening with the whole crew and it was mesmerizing to watch the dynamic between each member, the love, the dedication and the consideration that makes this family run operation a joy and success. For anyone who’s even been in the same room as Veronika Jobe, knows the positive energy and enthusiasm this woman exudes. I hope as you listen today, you come away inspired by this family’s story and gratitude. You can find YOTH at yothyarns.com and on Instagram @yarnonthehouse.
Sponsor: Wool & Honey’s focus is on thoughtful companies who add their own stories to our little spot in the world–brands that highlight fibers that mirror the exquisite natural beauty of their area. Michigan fiber artists are paramount—and their selection of locally grown, dyed, spun yarns and fiber is unparalleled. The hive is the center of it all–it’s home. Home to bees of all ages and ability levels, each adding a bit of shine to a vibrant community. Every day, these tiny workers gather pollen–powdery bits of fluff–and with a little time and effort, transform it into gorgeous, golden nectar. How similar we knitters are to the bee! Taking nothing more than two sticks and a string, we create warmth and comfort, fabric to clothe and decorate our bodies.

What a thing of beauty this story is – both on a personal family level as well as the lovely product they have each had a part in creating. Thank you for sharing this journey!
I had an opportunity to meet Veronika this past spring at Brooklyn General during The Girls Road Trip tour. I was so moved by how genuine she is (and Dami too)! Again, I am amazed by the closeness, respect and dedication of her entire family to each other and the business and hearing her talk about her brother made me cry- it was so heartfelt. Thank you for sharing the story of this amazing woman and family business!
Can’t wait to listen!
Listening and knitting
These yarn colors are so gorgeous!
I have wanted to try Yoth Yarns for a long time. I love their color palettes and it looks luminous. This podcast just made me more determined to knit a special project with their yarn. I need a road trip to Tolt or to Knit Fit so I can feel and see the yarn for myself. What a wonderful family! Their love for each other is palpable in their voices and shines through as they each speak. Thanks, Ashley, for bringing a little bit of them to us in your podcast. Bravo to all.
I cannot wait to listen to this podcast! I had the pleasure of feeling YOTH yarn at TOLT, and cannot wait to knit with it!
You get such a sense of how much of a family business Yoth is by hearing the bones of each family member! Would love the opportunity to try some of this lovely yarn.
I haven’t gotten to try YOTH yarn yet and now I really want to!
How inspiringI I am looking forward to trying YOTH yarn now too.
Beautiful photos & yarns – I’m going to get out my knitting & listen right now
Haha, Charlotte – I was going to say the same thing. I’m gonna wait until the house is quiet tomorrow morning and then sit with my knitting to listen to it! I wasn’t familiar with YOTH until recently when jess (@thekitchenwitch) knitted her beautiful KAL sweater in it. It looks beautiful!
I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. What an beautiful family and a priceless interview. loved it!
I really liked this episode and their yarn looks lovely.
so excited to listen to this episode!
The Yoth colours are stunning, i love the soft muted richness of them

Lovely podcast! Will definitely try this yarn – love their colors.
Yoth is a yarn company that intrigues me, and I am dying to try their yarn. Winning a sweater’s worth would be unreal! THank you for the lovely giveaway opportunity!
YOTH yarn’s product photos are the best I’ve ever seen. 🙂

Again, so lovely to learn about another yarn company I enjoy! Thanks for the podcast.
While knitting a hat this week with some YOTH Father I had in stash I thought” this yarn is really nice, I could see using it in a sweater”….but the thought crossed my mind I didn’t really know anything about the wool, where it comes from, who dyes it? What a treat then when I went to listen to Woolful this morning and saw Veronica Jobe’s name in the title! Enjoyed the family sharing so very much! Such a nice story….super pleasant to hear the details while I knit on my project with this lovely wool! Best of luck with your family endeavors!
What a lovely give-away package – of course, I would love it.
What a wonderful podcast! I love that the entire family is involved in Yoth Yarns and it is very apparent their love and respect for each other. Very inspiring!
The yarn colors are fabulous…at this moment Thyme is my favorite with a few others coming a close second, third, etc.
I wonder how many commenters know what a Petoskey stone is? So enjoy the Woolful,podcast…always a delight!
Loved this interview. What a beautiful family and company.
Thank you so much for these podcasts!
Lovely interview with such a warm, family operation. Selling happy indeed!
I met these two when they were a part of our Interweave Fest in Longmont, CO. They were the nicest, coolest people and I fell hard for their yarn and designs. What a great episode.

I love learning about people who love their careers. Especially when those people realize that they produce something that gives many people such joy and happiness…..this is a lucky (and hardworking) family!

What a great family story, enjoyed the podcast.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Veronika both at Tolt and at Baaad Anna’s in Vancouver. She is just a gem! And that yarn is so good! I’m so happy that YOTH has been thriving these last few years.
Lovely lovely episode. Such a great family of many talents and with the gift for combining them all together making the perfect match. And thank you so much for bringing the whole business togheter with also the male voices!
Agreed, such a delight to hear their story! And, yes, I know what a Petoskey stone is! And, the yarn is lovely…colors are amazing. I also love My Sister Knits!
Fun to hear Veronika and family talk about their love of fiber and working business together. And for this weeks sponsor, Wool and Honey! I’m going to make the 8 hour drive from Iowa to visit my dear sister and husband in Leelanau County for this weekends Brooklyn Tweed Trunk show!

The way YOTH is run and the deep connection to family and passion is so inspiring! I’m so glad you interviewed them, and the yarn is gorgeous.
Another great episode! Thanks for all the work you put into bringing us the story behind brands that are already household names, and introducing us to new ones. I’ve discovered some of my favorite companies through Woolful, and I feel that much happier supporting them when I know a little something about the wonderful people behind them.
Thanks for the chance to win. I loved this episode. Those stitch markers are perfection.
I’m a big fan of slightly greyed down colours, somehow it transforms any colour into a neutral; gender and fashion-wise. Fantastic!
How silly do I feel–I didn’t know Veronika Jobe was behind YOTH! Great to hear about the company & the family.
I really enjoyed hearing the story of the journey of YOTH yarns. Very inspirational.

Eep! There is rarely an opportunity where getting to sit down and listen happens outside the normal drive/taxi part of the day but this episode took me from the hum drum of every Monday and followed me back home to where I made the family listen alongside just so that I could finish the story. Thank you for your continued hard work to make these special moments happen for people like me!

I don't know if it's a Canadian thing or if I just like being comfortable, but I absolutely have 'home clothes' 😀
They're usually more comfortable and well worn items.
Oh, what fun! I loved hearing them all interact with each other. It’s so sweet that they can run YOTH all together.
What a great episode! this whole family business seems like a dream. I also definitely will twirl my hair if I’m not doing something with my hands. Good to know I’m not alone.
What a great episode and such a touching story. I really enjoyed listening to the love and joy the entire family shows. I honestly haven’t tried Yoth yarns, Listening to their interview has made me want to learn more about their palette, the creativity and passion they all have poured into the company. Your interviews are the best!

I really was inspired hearing the podcast today.Your name is so unique but, personal for every household.Having parents who have given the advise from their own perspective is enlightening and very helpful.On the other concerned in a way to guide your path to TOTH. My parents too were from Overseas Austria, I have a Hugh amount of respect for their strength and business savvy .Family companies is our inheritance in alloy of ways.
I have not yet seen or used the YOTH yarns- besides the lovely photos. I really want to knit with it now, though after hearing about how their family business came to be- unfolding and including everyone. Your podcast is showing us that beautiful yarns have beautiful stories.
What fun to listen to this great family dynamic and story about building the business. YOTH is inspirational in many ways. I love visiting their booth when they come to Stitches West, and now that I know their story I will look forward to my next visit even more.

This was my first time listening to your podcast and I really enjoyed hearing the family story behind YOTH. I live less than 20 miles away from Woodinville so it was fun to hear about a local business, and it was great to hear the genuine warmth and respect within this family.
Such a lovely and inspiring family. I enjoyed this episode so much! Have been wanting to try YOTH yarns for a long time now, so would love to win some. 🙂
I am currently knitting a sweater with little brother in peach. love their yarn. It was wonderful hearing how all this came about
I just started listening to this podcast and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long! It’s wonderful to hear people talking about wool and knitting (I’d talk about it more but most people don’t care that much haha) Keep up the good episodes!
What a great story. A wonderful immigrant family living the American dream. I am always so happy for folks that find their calling and are able to work in a job that makes them happy. Maybe a little green with envy too, but only in a good way. I really enjoyed listening to the stories. There is so much love. Thank you.
Amazing podcast and interview. Just getting to know the family made me want to squish all of their yarn. Thanks for the great looks into the lives of our favorite artists.
Just discovered you and am totally thrilled!
This was an absolutely awesome story. It was so inspiring, as are all your podcasts. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I am looking forward to knitting with Yoth yarns in the future, and think about the love and passion that has gone into each skein.
[…] Canada, Japan and Europe. I highly recommend listening to their inspiring story at Woolful – “Veronika Jobe, Danny Burda & Family – Czech roots, road trips, family and Yarn On The H…. I really admire how loving and supporting their family […]
