Garments are made of Australian Extra Fine Merino Wool, they are gossamer-soft, warm and lightweight, and are Hand Dyed in the glorious colors of the Australian landscape. Each garment is totally unique. Garments may be Made to Measure and Dyed to Order. The colors may be viewed on the website:

The Range includes Scarves, Wraps, Jackets and Hats. Nullarbor Nights Knitwear is retailed in galleries Australia-wide, as well as in the US, Switzerland, Sweden and Canada.

“I developed my craft living on the Nullarbor where the Desert meets the Ocean of the Great Australian Bight. The Dyeing was an instinctive reaction against living in that vast, all-pervading, monotone landscape. The only time the colours really came to life was after rain, the dust was washed off all the rocks, lichens and leaves revealing threads and veins of delicate apricots and ochre juxtaposed with steel-grey granites and the soft sage-greens of saltbush.”
