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!
