Nitro Introduces Phydeaux Designs

May 03, 2015



Nitro Knitters is excited to add Phydeaux Designs to our ever-expanding lineup of amazing yarns.  Phydeaux (pronounced "fido") Designs is a one-woman knitting California-based design company owned by Brenda Lavell.

Brenda loves fiber and color and she looks at dyeing yarn as a form of painting.  It allows her to bring color to life for all of the knitters who are lucky enough to choose her yarn for a special project.

As a knitter, Brenda likes truly variegated colors that neither stripe or pool.  She wants to be surprised on each row with pops and flecks of unexpected color, so she dyes color ways that she enjoys knitting and that are inspired by the amazing colors of Old World Europe.

We have brought in Beurre "butter" fingering weight and DK weight.  Brenda could not have chosen a better name because this superwash merino yarn feels like butter in your hands while knitting.  The lighter fingering weight is a generous 485 yards, perfect for garments and accessories.  The DK weight is just slightly lighter than worsted at 230 yards and would be a dream to knit into garments or accessories.
