Mrs Moon | Plump DK | Darjeeling
Mrs Moon’s Plump DK (double knitting) yarn is made from the same highest quality, sustainable, superfine merino and baby alpaca as Plump SC and the same beautiful 21 shades. It is incredibly soft and squidgy – absolutely gorgeous to work with and wear..
Fibre: 80% superfine merino, 20% baby alpaca
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 for 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.
