If you are new to knitting, this is the place to start.  Our beginner's kit includes 2 skeins of Plump, 10mm needles and some practice yarn plus a  beginner's guide, pattern for a rib scarf, sewing up needle and a Mrs Moon project bag

The guide takes you step by step through casting on, knitting, purling and alternating knit and purl stitches.  It has patterns for three different scarves at the back and a Plump rib scarf pattern is included.

You can use the guide in conjunction with our How To guides which take you through each step in How to Knit Parts 1, 2 and 3.


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.

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

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!
