Now that the cooler months are upon us, why not invest in some new, quality winter woolies! Alpaca wool is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fiber, perfect for winter!

Not only is it warmer than sheep's wool, it also has no lanolin (meaning it is hypoallergenic) and won't itch - this also makes it the ideal fiber for kids clothing. The Australian Alpaca Barn specialises in Alpaca fashion, homewares and accessories, and is definitely worth a visit (even if it's just to feel the softness!).

Scarf: 70% Baby Alpaca and 30% Silk, made in Peru. $69, 27 designs available.

Gloves: Reversible glove, the double thickness makes them extra warm. 100% Baby Alpaca, made in Peru, $69.

Throw Rug: 100% Baby Alpaca (so soft!), 1.8m x 1.3m, made in Peru, $258.

WHERE Peppers Creek on Broke Road and in Hunter Valley Gardens Shopping Village, Pokolbin. Also Swan Street in Morpeth. OPEN 7 days 10am - 5pm. www.australianalpaca.com
