  1. I LOVE the Kraemer Perfection Lights Copper! BEAUTIFUL yarn! Your website however doesn’t seem to be working properly. I tried to search for more yarns but nothing will pull up. Hope you get it fixed soon. Thanks again!

    1. Thanks Melinda. I greatly appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. With the two of us and close to 7,000 pages, extra eyes checking the website for errors is extremely helpful. The site’s search engine requires correct spelling. With your issue, the system liked “Perfection Lights Copper” but the inclusion of Kraemer was not. I added “Kraemer Yarns” to the title. This appears to have fixed the problem. The other item that is tricky is the apostrophe in Shepherd’s Wool. Without it, the search brings up zero results. *shrug* Happy knitting(?). Charles

  2. Hi! <3 I would love the option of creating a wishlist, if that's something that's supported by this webhost. Sometimes I like to prep my items that I'll need to order for future projects but I'm not ready to go ahead and purchase them. No problem if that's not something that's an option!

    1. Hi Sydney! We’ve browsed around wishlist plugins before; I browsed around again just now and found a couple that look promising. I’ll put this on my to-do list for Saturday and let you know how it goes. :)

    2. It’s installed, give it a try and let us know what you think!

  3. I absolutely love this store. I make tiny doll clothes, etc., and she has had about everything I have needed with such a great selection! I can not buy enough! Always with super fast shipping, well packaged. Let us not forget about the super friendly service! I will always check here first and will be a loyal and repeat customer.

  4. You have a thread I have been searching for for a couple of years now. I was so excited to have finally found it and ordered immeadiately. Thank you, now I can finally work on an embroidery I have been planning in my head for years. Another project for my bucket list… .

    1. Hi Michele, we’re so glad we could help you out!

  5. Love your availability of products, prices and fast service. Will be using you often.

  6. I searched and searched for a discontinued yarn and found your site AND the yarn I needed. I am a happy camper. Did I mention the price was well within what I was expecting and willing to pay.
