winter wool blankets knitted by Luna Gallery

Australian Merino Wool is our friend for life.  This August we were still deep in production knitting up Winter wool blankets & jumpers for that last dash of cold weather.

That’s what we love about our lifestyle brands – we work IN the seasons, with the seasons and for the seasons.

Superfine merino wool … for all Seasons.

Luna Gallery loves the Mod Collective ceramics by Valissa Butterworth

We at Luna have known Val from the Mod Collective for many many years. We exhibit together, we compare notes together AND we buy each others wares.

Yet again we have a new stash of Val’s amazing ceramic design & yet again we praise her colour palette, her incredibly clever designs and her astonishing HARD WORK.

When you find a product / brand aesthetic that works for you … and you love using it & seeing it every day … it brings you so much JOY.

Bowerbird Market Adelaide May 11th, 2017

Luna Gal knitwear at Bowerbird market Adelaide

We love the buzz of a good market & Adelaide really knows how to turn it on.

Bowerbird is a dynamic environment for creative collaborators, supporting Australian designers, makers & artists.
It brings all kinds of people together for design-savvy interactions, with a heartfelt passion for small production runs, the handmade and offers the opportunity for buyers to meet makers – every stall at Bowerbird is staffed by the creatives behind the products.

Catching up with our fellow designer friends is a treat and the road trip from Melbourne is a very cruisy drive … if you happen to have a great pal by your side.

Thank you SO MUCH Jane Barwick & Adelaide for this great experience – we’ll see you next year.

Merino wool knitwear by Luna Gal @ Pomme in Mornington.

Our Mid Winter Woolly Window @ Pomme celebrating Winter & Wool on the Mornington Peninsula.

Sue Clement @ Pomme has been a longstanding loyal & devoted friend & retailer of the Luna Gal Lifestyle knitwear range for 14 years.
On Sunday in July we spent a glorious sunny afternoon nattering about knits & meeting their lovely clientelle, some of whom were donning their vintage Luna Knits.

Thanks Sue & Tully (shop dog) for such a gorgeous event.

Superfine Merino Wool June 22nd, 2017

Australian grown, Australian made knitwear by Luna Gal in Melbourne.

Our favourite fibre ~ a gift from nature.

We at Luna applaud our farmers & support Australian wool … forever.

Our choice ~ 18.5 or 19.5 micron EasyCare yarn from … we think … the best wool spinners & dyers in the world.

Recently we have had the absolute pleasure of knitting with 16.5 micron super 140’s superfine merino wool. It is deliciously soft & beautiful to wear & cannot wait to share it with you.

with love from Luna

Daniela Gregis – knit design March 19th, 2017

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: Luna gal, We Love
Knit design by Daniella Gregis is one of our faves at Luna Gal.

…tricycle, cycle, recycle…each thing has use as something else, and everything is transformed…forward, backward, return…it’s the path of a child, the zigzag of a mend…to play, to work, to help…a different tricycle in each time of life, received from someone and then given to another, life a craft or a big coat…three buttons, three wheels, three colours, it takes so little to do so much…waste becomes thread, thread becomes fabric, fabric becomes filling…yellow in the sky, evening night blue and naturals…beginning with what one is, working with what one has, living, preserving, transforming…

triciclo the wonderful inspiration of Daniela Gregis for her Autumn Winter 2017/2018 range.

An Autumn Addition March 1st, 2017

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: Luna gal, News
Luna Gal Autumn knitwear - pure combed cotton - range 1.

Our Luna Gal 1st knitwear drop for Autumn — Pure Soft Cotton Melange.

Throughout the Seasons we will be offering you knitted collections in our beautifully sourced yarns:
Extrafine Merino Wool
Super Kid Mohair
Cashmire & Pima Cotton
& our new find …
Cupro blended with Extrafine Merino & Cotton.

We hope these smaller capsule ranges will allow flexibility & a tighter range plan within your store.

The retail landscape is changing, and it must be incredibly hard to place orders so far out of season.
We hope we can work more closely with you to deliver styles & colours that offer a point of difference.
As a local designer / manufacturer, we have that capability.

Our next range … extrafine merino wool … our favourite fibre.

Warmest Wishes
