Mrs Moon Plump (L-Raspberry Ripple, Pavlova and Peppermint Cream). Loop, London

Mrs Moon Plump (L-Raspberry Ripple, Pavlova and Peppermint Cream)

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?)

We also have the super fluffy alpaca fur pompoms from Toft and pompom makers if you fancy making your own.

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!
