Bulky Weight is Here to Stay

  • Mint green bulky yarn.

With a season of change (three cheers for Spring!) upon us, the Bad Lux Designs lineup has sprouted a new base!

This super-soft, squishy 2ply bulky-weight base is perfect for quick knit and fast crochet projects. The new base is made up of 100% fine Superwash wool sourced from Peru. Bad Lux Designs colors strike with intensity on this bulky beauty. The scrumptious feeling of the fine Merino wool is a dream to work with. Slowly but surely, each standard Bad Lux Designs color is getting added to the shop and will be restocked regularly. If you'd like more quantity than what is available, please do not hesitate to contact me to place a special order.

Stock will continue to burst forth throughout the year. Look forward to a new Bad Lux Designs color collection launching in mid-May. 😉

Romantisch Collection Debut

Isn’t it Romantisch? The Romantisch collection is complete and available in the Bad Lux Designs shop now! Each swoon-worthy color is available on Bulky, DK and Fingering weights for all your crochet and knitting dreams.

When it came time to name my latest color collection, the colors are a dreamy, deep escape into romantic notions so naturally, my brain bubbled the word “Romantisch” to the surface. When I first learned this German word, I would roll the R a little, drop “mAN” for a more guttural “MAHn,” and then end in a whispering “tisch.” It felt like a secret endeavor. The word promised an escape into velvety, soft whispers from a lover.

Colors include:
– Ever the Optimist
– M’Lady
– Troubadour
– Stop Time
– Beguiling
– Moonstruck
– Miss You
