We are two sisters from Billings, Montana. Jolane is a retired attorney, and Anne is a registered nurse. We started our yarn-dyeing business in 2014, and so far, it's a blast!
Jolane practiced law full-time for many years, but she always carved out time to hone her skills at various crafts and hobbies. In addition to dyeing yarn, Jolane plays the clarinet (recently retired from our local symphony orchestra). She and her husband, Brian, also enjoy skiing, hiking, fishing, and biking in the great State of Montana.
Anne received her college education in pre-physical therapy and nursing. She married her husband, John, in 1998, and they have three children with one still in the "nest". Anne and her family moved to Billings in 2013, and shortly thereafter, she worked part-time at a local yarn shop.
Both of us sisters have been interested in crafts for a very long time. Almost every craft - you name it - has been at least attempted: crochet, macrame, quilting, counted cross stitch, scrap-booking, stamping, candle matching etc. But there was one craft we had never tried until Anne gave it a go in 2010 - knitting. A couple of years later, Anne talked Jolane into trying the craft too, and a new shared obsession was born. By 2013, we were both full swing into the knitting craze and especially had fun knitting socks with self-striping yarn. Pretty soon a new idea was hatched. Why not try dyeing our own self-striping yarn? Thus, Two Sisters Yarn Company came into being.
Anne went back to work full-time as a nurse in 2017, so since that time she has taken on the role of color-adviser, and Jolane has done all of the yarn dyeing. They both love to come up with unique self-striping colorways for fingering weight yarn. We hope you love it as much as we do!
