Do you have any crafts you want to try but haven't yet? One of those things for me was wool felting. I think the little felted wool balls can be so cute for different projects but I have never tried making them. So, when I got the chance to review a sample box of wool roving from Kraemer Yarns I was really excited to try it out. Read More

Experiments With Alternating Skeins When Knitting With Hand Dyed Yarn

A while back, I shared a free tutorial showing how to solar dye yarn with Kool-Aid - click here if you missed it! The resulting skeins were begging me to knit with them, and even though they were dyed at the same time, there are natural variations between the two which could become all too apparent when used in the same project...

Solar Dyeing with Kool-Aid & Kraemer Yarn

I’m not really a ‘summer’ person, but I finally found a reason to get excited about 90 degree weather: solar dyeing!
I’ve always wanted to try this technique, but usually don’t think about it till summer is long gone. Lucky for me, a box of undyed yarns from Kraemer Yarns showed up on my doorstep not too long ago, prompting me to make some plans for dyeing experiments which I can share on this blog... Read more

I Hook Design: My Day at Kraemer Textiles and Yarn

While I was in NJ on family business I took a yarn day.  I drove to Nazareth PA to meet in person the team at Kraemer Yarns. I arrived just before 10 am when the Yarn Store opens to a warm greeting from Sharon. 
Here is an excerpt from their website on their history:
 
Kraemer Yarns continues its legacy of spinning fine quality yarns for over a century. At the beginning was Kraemer Hosiery Mills, spinning & creating the most sought after silk stockings made in America.

Time marches on and Kraemer Textiles diversified into carpet, upholstery & industrial yarns becoming one of the premier spinners of American made carpet yarns for companies like Burlington & Mohawk in the 60’s & 70’s. The business continued to diversify developing yarns in areas like paper production machinery, rope yarns and military contracts to name a few. Our mill’s ability to spin novelty yarns for which few other mills in the country had the production capabilities, brought us into the apparel industry. We have worked for “celebrity designers” and well known labels to create traditional & current fashion looks and with the likes of L.L. Bean and Remington developing demanding, hard working outdoor yarns for sweaters, hats, gloves & socks. Kraemer Yarns proudly walked in the opening ceremonies at the winter games of 2014 in the hats & sweaters of our United States Olympic athletes!
