"I can't WAIT to get started on this HUGE YARN! (Mikey for size)"

Our favorite actress, celebrity fur-mother and knitter, Krysten Ritter, loves to share her skills with others and recently appeared on the Rachael Ray show to teach the daytime TV personality how to extreme knit. As a young girl, Krysten learned to knit from her grandmother, and now as an adult she now always has multiple projects on the go. The prolific knitter loves the speed with which extreme knitting takes form, exclaiming "what's cool about it is that you could knit a whole blanket in half a day". In an interview with Mollie Makes, Krysten admits to be a bit of a yarn hoarder, owning enough yarn "to knit a blanket to cover a football field". And guess what.... Plump & Co's super bulky merino wool yarn is one of her favorites!

Mikey Mohawk loves napping on all his beds that Krysten makes him. Pets love chunky merino wool yarn, so fortunately wool is naturally odor repelling!

Plump & Co loves animals and we source our high quality New Zealand merino wool 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.
