Christmas Jumper


 I strongly feel that a Christmas Jumper should be for life and not just for Christmas. It’s that one piece of nostalgic clothing that comes out year after year and puts a smile on your face. And as such, I think that it is worth spending time and money creating a lovely version. Hopefully this is what you have here. I was inspired to make these for my eldest two sons Henry and Freddie who are away at university up north. I hope they’ll give them a cuddle from home and all the warmth that’s needed in the Durham streets! Next on the needles is one for their Dad. They are super fast to make. Snuggly, light and frankly, fabulous. Although I’ve made them with men in mind, the pattern is completely unisex.

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 [email protected]

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!
