What is this yellow stringy stuff growing on my yarrow?

Crawford, CO(Zone 4a)

Several of my yarrow plants have strange yellow stringy stuff growing all over the plants. It looks like very, very thin spaghetti. What is this stuff and how do I get rid of it?

Do you have a picture? Can't imagine. I have yarrow and do not have that.

I think possibly ecrane3 has it nailed. I posted the question last night so couldn't include a picture. But here is the picture and it looks like dodder. What do I need to do to get rid of it?

That is the strangest thing I have ever seen. No kidding. Weird. How DO you get rid of it?

It was dodder after all. I thought maybe I could just be very diligent in pulling it all out before it went to seed. That is impossible, so I finally dug up all the plants, sprayed the area with Round Up and waited a year. I have now replanted in that spot and it is dodder free. Thanks for the help.

Glad you finally got rid of it! Nasty stuff.
