Plump DK (double knitting) yarn is made from the same highest quality, sustainable, superfine merino and baby alpaca as Plump Superchunky and the same beatuiful 19 shades. 

We are so sorry that due to a sudden surge in demand we are out of a few colours at the moment.  These should be back in stock in February.  Please do email if you need advice or clarification about availabillity.

It is incredibly soft and squidgy - absolutely gorgeous to work with and wear.

Fibre: 80% superfine merino, 20% baby alpaca
 
Weight: double knit/ worsted
 
Length: 115m per 50g
 
Needle size: 4-4.5mm
 
 

Plump dk is a pretty standard doubleknit or light worsted weight yarn.   We have used it for straight double knit projects as well as projects specifying an aran weight yarn and found it works well for both.  Any needle size from 3.75mm to 4.5mm is great.

Ballband Tension (gauge):
Using a 4mm needle over stocking stitch: 22 sts to 10cm and 30 rows.

We really recommend not getting too stressed about exact tensions.  Everyone knits differently and your knitting tension can even change with your mood!  If you have found a yarn you really like and it's in the right ball park, why not buy a ball and give it a go?  Try a slightly different needle size if you are way off the right tension.  If you are putting all the effort into knitting then best to use a yarn you love!

Washing
Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Shedding
Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at info@mrsmoon.co.uk

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
