English MustardPepperSea Salt

Our brand new 'super' super chunky comes is super fun to knit or crochet with and is perfect for almost instant accessories.  This is made from same mix of 80% ethically sourced superfine merino and 20% baby alpaca as Plump but is twice the thickness and has a twist to lock in the softness. It currently comes in three shades; Sea Salt (undyed), Pepper (light marl grey) and English Mustard (a zingy green/yellow).  Nb.  This yarn is essentially twice the thickness and half the length of Plump.

Length 40 metres, 100g skeins, Needle/Hook size 15mm - 35mm, Tension 4 -6 stitches to 10cm/4"

Ethical Provenence of Mrs Moon Yarns

The tops are from non-mulesed Merino sheep from ethical farms, all the wool is shorn and not a bi-product of the animal skin industry as the sheep are kept fro wool production alone.  The alpaca is also shorn, the animals being kept for fibre production only.

 

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!
