Spring Knitwear Collection September 22nd, 2017

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: News, We Love
Luna Gal Spring Lifestlye Knitwear collection 2017.

When the only reliable thing about the weather is how unreliable it is, knitted layering saves the day.

Luna Gal releases her new range of Lifestyle Knitwear for Spring, with a focus on easy-wear, easy-care relaxed fit knits. These hard-working knits are designed to become an addictive addition for all occasions.

Knit drapes and falls naturally, skimming your body, never restricting it from your natural movement.
Well ours don’t anyway.
We love the feel of natural fibres and use supreme quality superfine merino wool and pure melange cotton.

Our Spring Lifestyle knits have been created for everyday luxury – yoga, over active wear – perfect weekend and travel garments.

For Supreme Quality – we Choose Wool. August 22nd, 2017

Knitted Yoga and travel wrap knitted in 16.5 micron superfine merino wool.

Working with wool get’s better and better. We were recently commissioned to knit a wrap for Lexus Australia as an exclusive gift. They requested cashmere. So we contacted our finest yarn suppliers and sourced cashmere / merino wool blend, silk / cashmere … and 16.5 micron superfine merino wool.

The results were unanimous – the superfine merino wool outperforms the rest – has the most beautiful feel, smoothest knitting process, washes beautifully AND is sourced from home grown Australian sheep.

We couldn’t have been happier with the results and have added it to our own Luna Gallery range as our staple yoga and travel wrap.

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.

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.

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

Melbourne Design will be on show at the most stunning Trade Event for the season.
Design industry event Denfair will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from
8–10 June 2017 & we will exhibit our luscious knits alongside our fellow local design clan.

The best of Australian & international design will be displayed in curated spaces showcasing brands & products from around the globe…and as usual the Denfair team will deliver beautiful areas for eating, drinking & being merry.

The creation of Denfair – a design trade show set up in 2015 – acts as a much-needed showcase for the best designers in Melbourne for furniture, textiles, timber, ceramics, art & lighting. In a short space of time it has become the show that attracts architects, interior designers, stylists & furniture retailers looking for the next big thing + originally designed local product.
