Mrs Moon | Plump Super Chunky | Rhubarb Crumble
Mrs Moon’s 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. With 70m on a 100g skein it goes a lot further than many super chunky yarns.
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.
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.
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.
