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.
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.
With crisp mornings & cool nights, the time is now for knits.
Luna Gal releases range 2 for Autumn with our signature SUPER kid mohair – beautiful quality, superfine & soft – knitted with extrafine merino wool for that super snug feel.
Yummmm – that light & luscious layer for warmth & glamour.
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.
Knitting to a new Pattern.
This year Luna Gallery dares to be different – choosing not to do trade fairs – nor presenting vast ranges.
We have been wanting to ‘cut the cord’ for many years but usually suffered FOMO in the lead up. As a very well established Life inStyle exhibitor – one of the first 8 to start the show – it was a big decision.
But we feel we need to do things differently – get off the hamster wheel – go back to our roots and simply design knits … with our knitters.
We love the process of knit design, but it doesn’t always go to plan.
It is a VERY organic process … and that my friends is what we do – produce knitted products from a twinkling of an idea starting from beautiful natural fibres.
… so forgive us for retreating from the social mediums for a bit, but sometimes we just need to
‘knit to our own pattern’.
We wont be going to Life InStyle this season – this time round we are knitting up a new pattern.
Opting for simpler days … and working with our clients in more meaningful ways.
Here’s to new adventures, new knits … & new client liaisons.
KNIT ON Luna Gal
Houzz is a platform for home renovation and design, bringing homeowners
and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community.
See our profile on:
As the year zooms, we reflect on the folk who have helped, inspired & ‘bloody well’ kept us
on track this 2016.
Not only friends & family … but our knitters & their fabulous & loyal staff.
Our fellow design gang, our golden clients …
photographer, super stylist & gorgeously generous team.
And yet the passion of a few young folk met on the journey IS the most inspiring.
It is their vision & determination to ‘believe’ … to keep knit, wool &
our local industry alive & thriving in Oz.
Knitting in Australia has become really hard – the challenges vast
– yet SO many stand by us … and believe.
THANK YOU … XX luna
