PLUMPTIOUS CHUNKY YARN //
Our ‘plumptious’ chunky yarns are created with stability, durability and simplicity in mind, but we do want to make sure you’re ready for any ‘bumps’ in the road. So please make sure you take a moment and check out our disclaimer before making your purchase.
Our yarn is soft and comfortable against the skin, is easy-care and has a low pilling quotient. Our 1 ply is sturdy and sculptural, while our 2 ply is soft, squishy and has amazing drape. Wool is naturally odour repelling so it’s great for families and pets.
Our New Zealand merino wool is sourced from growers with a commitment to the ZQ Merino ethos, meeting the highest standards in the areas of animal welfare, environmental care, and social sustainability, along with delivering premium quality “fit for purpose” fibre.
EXTREME KNITTING //
We couldn’t be more excited to share with you Plump & Co’s range of XXL knitting yarn, so you can enjoy the process of XXL knitting in the comfort of your own home. Everyone's tension is very different, so the tighter you knit, the more yarn required. A single bump of yarn can be used to make a scarf, beanie or bowl. A blanket requires 2-5 bumps but pieces can be grown by “blocking” and adding tassels. Unwind your yarn off the cone to give it a bit of time to plump up before you knit it.
XXL knitting pushes the boundaries of the traditional craft. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, don’t give up, and make what you want, how you want! Once you’ve thrown out the rule book, remember to relax! Knitting with too tight a tension won’t knot the yarn - but it might put a few knots in your shoulders. Knit with a regular tension, find your rhythm, and watch your creation grow.
