Autumn Tones & Textures April 2nd, 2016

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: News
luna loves autumn, textures & tones, figs & chestnuts, apples & pears

the nights are chilly, the light is fading & we rug up in our favourite knits.

Heading out of town & gathering local produce is a seasonal delight — figs & chestnuts, apples & pears, tomatoes & carrots abound — a lavish offering of colour, tone, texture … & nutrition.

As we say farewell to daylight saving, we relish the new season’s produce, the extra hour Sunday sleep in … & yummy wool knits to nurture & keep us warm.

Knit production has SO many elements — yarn, tension, stitch, technology, finish — but most importantly…our machinery.

In March we hit the highways and worked in the factories — sewing and finishing our knits — learning more about our machines.
We work with both STOLL and Shima Seiki, and can honestly tell you first hand ~ they work hard ~ they are precision instruments but can only perform with the BEST operators.

So we applaud our knitters, our factories and our technicians. They work above and beyond — their staff are phenomenal — Australian Manufacture is alive and well.

The Autumn Equinox March 20th, 2016

autumn equinox - seasons

and the days become shorter … the nights longer.
The Equinox marks the ending of one season and beginning of the new — where the days and nights are of equal length — we welcome Autumn.
Seasons have their own natural ebb and flow, gently orchestrating transition — in nature and in our lives.

Wool ~ Our Hero at Life in Style February 22nd, 2016

This year at Life in Style we championed our Australian Extrafine Merino Wool for all ranges – home, baby and garments.
It was great to meet wool growers and farmers and lovers of our luscious local Merino Wool.

Australian Merino is of the highest quality, and well known Italian company’s — Zegna, Grignasco, Dive — all use Australian wool for their knitting and weaving yarns.
These high quality Italian company’s produce the most luxurious and resilient yarns for knits that keeps their shape and are easy to wash and care for.

We at Luna pursue excellence in yarns — and strive to create knits that best suit our customers lives — never sacrificing elegance for function. Extrafine merino wool knitted blankets by luna home

Luna New Year - red fire monkey – 2016

It is true we love to celebrate the MOON phases – and this first New Moon of the year brings a new energy – that of the RED FIRE MONKEY.
Monkey is active, smart, wily and creative — loving to pursue new knowledge, fashion — communicating new ideas with intelligence and wit.
The Monkey’s gift is the ability to find unconventional solutions to old problems. Daring to be different can lead to success.

With the Monkey’s enthusiastic energy, anything can happen, plans can succeed, business flourishes and risks tend to pan out.
But beware the tricks – we don’t want to be taken advantage of!.

Monkey is connected to the wind … maybe WIND power will take off … let’s hope.

working in the factories January 29th, 2016

knit sampling

Design is a pleasure ~ but working IN the knit factories is our greatest inspiration ~ seeing the stitches, yarns & colours come to life!
In January we hit the highways to our factories in Victoria with early 5am starts to beat the traffic – but not the knitters – the machines are running before dawn. Being really prepared with yarns & colours is a must, & our work sheets & wish lists were ready to roll.
But manufacturing…knitting especially…is not always smooth sailing. Whilst our 4gg ‘Mad Max’ was knitting like a dream, the 5gg was just not keen to ‘change tack’ – literally – so down-time was a little harrowing. Meanwhile the focus was on the 12gg – to create new superfine styles in extrafine merino wool – & we are proud to say they will be in stores very soon.
We love our knitters, their staff & the machinery — and remain dedicated to our cause & passion — to support & encourage our local knit industry! . Please join us in our quest.
