Plump Superchunky yarn is unbelievably soft and luxurious.  Made from the highest quality, sustainable, superfine merino and baby alpaca fibres, it is a joy to work with and wear.

The yarn is roving in nature, meaning that it is single ply with little twist, which helps keep the squidginess of the fibres, but during the spinning process the fibres are slightly felted together to ensure that it doesn't split when you are working with it.

Plump Superchunky comes in 15 beautiful shades...   now you just need to choose your favourites! (Please note, clotted cream has been re-named Pavlova). Please note we are out of stock of Gooseberry Fool, Marmalade, Peppermint Cream, bonbon, blueberry muffin and darjeeling until February.  We are so sorry for the inconvenience. 

Fibre: 80% superfine merino, 20% baby alpaca
 
Weight: superchunky
 
Length: 70m per 100g
 
Needle size:10-15mm
 
 

Plump is a pretty standard superchunky (super bulky) weight and can be substituted as such.

Ballband Tension (gauge):

Using 10mm needles over stocking stitch: 10 sts to every 10cm

We have used it on many different needle sizes from 8mm to 20mm according to the structure and drape of fabric we want to produce. The larger the needle, the looser the fabric will be.

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!
