Make way for the squishy soft Plump from Mrs. Moon! These winter months are something we can look forward to with these delightful brights – and who can be blue when there is a matching pompom in tow?
Be sure to read to the end of the post to find out how you can win a skein and a pompom in the colours of your choice!
Mrs. Moon was started by sisters Karen Miller and Susan Ritchie and originally started as a bricks and mortar shop in 2009. After several requests from customers for quick and easy knitting patterns, these crafty ladies started penning their own designs. But it had them thinking, ‘Shouldn’t we have our own yarn to compliment these patterns?’. A few years later and Plump was the result – a smooth super chunky single ply yarn, made from ethically sourced Australian merino wool, blended with a soft touch of alpaca.
Karen and Susan knew they wanted the whole Plump palate to work harmoniously and inspire knitters to pair colours with ease. Their inspiration was an old box of tapestry threads that belonged to their mum (a talented maker herself). They tipped the box out on the floor and chose the most joyful colours on impulse and then carefully edited down to fifteen.
The gorgeous Plump colour range is defined by the sisters as ‘chocolate box’ and there certainly is a nod to the sweeter things in life with the edible colour names. Lemon Curd and Damson Jam are joined by Raspberry Ripple and Sugared Almond…delicious!
Each shade is also available in pompom form. Ideal for jazzing up hats, the ends of scarves and anything that needs a pompom (everything needs a pompom, right?)
And of course we have all the patterns that the Mrs. Moon sisters designed. Classic comfort knits that are great for beginners, plus we all know the joy of how quick chunky yarn knits up!
And how quickly it crochets up too! We also have a lovely selection of crochet patterns for Plump.
We’re giving you lovely readers the chance to win one skein of Mrs. Moon Plump and a Plump pompom in the colour of your choice! Just comment below letting us know what combination you would go for and we’ll announce the winner on next weeks blog post.
This competition will close at midnight Wednesday 25th November. As always we will randomly choose a winner from the comments. Good Luck!
Until next week, Happy Knitting and crocheting!
