Thirteen Mile Lamb and Wool Company operates in rural Montana, raising their sheep and processing their wool onsite in their own mill. The ranch is Certified Organic and Certified Predator Friendly. Becky Weed and Dave Tyler have a strong commitment to being environmentally sustainable, they do this by using renewable energy in their mill and managing their pastures carefully and organically to protect the health of the soil and careful management of the water on their land, keeping the livestock out of the creek that runs through it. Also the wool is processed gently, without chemicals, retaining the beauty and liveliness inherent in the wool.
Becky uses natural dyes primarily found locally in Montana and supplemented by Botanical Colors. The wool is dyed prior to spinning and is blended with undyed wool to achieve the colors that are available, including undyed wool in the mix improves the texture of the dyed yarn, giving it more bounce and softness.
