We love wool blankets in winter – that extra layer of knitted wool – drapes & nurtures like nothing else.

Merino Wool is indeed OUR favourite fibre to knit with, as we ALWAYS strive to support our farmers, their sheep, and enduring hard work … and their dogs too.

Support Australian farmers … and please … support australian made knit manufacture.
We know KNIT & we know & love GOOD WOOL.

we love to celebrate wool – and this week is WOOL WEEK – a campaign for WOOL by the Woolmark Company.

Merino Wool is indeed OUR favourite fibre to knit with, as we ALWAYS strive to support our farmers, their sheep, and enduring hard work … and their dogs too.

But how beautiful is wool to wear? The most versatile of yarns : it is warm, nurturing, durable, sustainable, NATURAL, resilient … the list goes on.

We use Australian Wool ~ extrafine merino wool which is 18.5 micron AND superwash ~ machine wash & tumble dry.

SO … here’s to WOOL … sheep … and their farmers – our wool growers of Australia.
WE @ luna applaud you and support you forever!

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.

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

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.
