Kraemer Textiles is located in Nazareth, PA and spins thousands of pounds of yarn a week for various textiles markets. Their factory has been spinning since 1907, and the company started producing yarns for hand-knitters in 2005.
When I spotted Nazareth, PA just a few miles off our course on the way to Lancaster County, I knew we had to make a detour!
Kraemer Yarns are all made in America and the company was featured in Tanis Gray’s Knit Local. The company offers a wide range of yarns, including a wide variety of undyed skeins (which I find particularly fun!
The shop looks like any other LYS, except that there’s only one brand of yarn in stock! It was really lovely to see the whole Kraemer line in person, since a particular LYS only carries a select few of their yarns. There was lots to choose from, but I gravitated towards something you can only get at the Kraemer shop… Kraemer mill ends!
Mill ends are lengths of yarn leftover from the milling process that aren’t big enough for a skein… so they’re rounded up and sold for a steal! I got this bag for only $3! They’re all undyed lengths of various yarns… I’m excited to play around with them!
