  • The search for the perfect single-ply Worsted weight yarn is over!

    This incredibly gorgeous yarn, sold in giant sweater put-up skeins, is nothing like some of the inferior singles out there on the market today.

    Singles have gained popularity because they are so instagrammably beautiful, but the vast majority are made from unnamed mill-floor yarns from (who knows where) which pill all over the place and are squeeky/scratchy to work with, and liberally treated with super-wash chemicals.

    W.O.W. is a different story. Worsted spun from 100% Superfine Merino, this non-superwash yarn will go the distance and is a dream to work with.

    It doesn't shed, and is strong enough for garments as well as hard-working hats, cowls and accessories.

    AND it's oficially Okeo-Tex 100 Certified, i.e. certified Organic!

    W.O.W. is the skinnier sister of Super B. by Galler Yarns, and also comes in a range of delicious soft pastels and rich, saturated solids.

    Each giant 267g (8 oz) skein holds a full 434m of yarn, so it's actually really great value too.

  • Once upon a time in 1920’s Luxembourg, Joseph Galler and his brother began a business in the heart of the capital city: “H. Galler – Bonneterie en Gros,” or “H. Galler Wholesale Handknitting Yarns.”

    The boys, only in their late teens, had to use their father’s name, H. Galler, as they were too young to assume the business title. With hard work and determination, the brothers maintained a successful shop for almost 2 decades until the German invasion of Luxembourg in 1940 shut them down.

    During WWII, Joseph and his family moved to New York and created Joseph Galler Inc (incorporated 1952). 

    The business was one of the only ones of its kind back then, and had a huge showroom in the city until Joseph's death, April 3, 1993.

    Today Joseph's granddaughter, Star, runs the business which is focussed on humanely cultivated, exquisite fibres that will last generations.
