Warming up Winter at The Australian Alpaca Barn

As the cooler months approach, there's nothing quite as cosy and indulgent as wrapping up in sumptuous alpaca wool. And for those seeking the ultimate in natural luxury, the Australian Alpaca Barn in the picturesque Hunter Valley is the perfect destination.


Originally established to promote Australian alpaca products made from locally grown fibre, the range has expanded to offer a global selection sourced from premium alpaca wool manufacturers in Australia, New Zealand, and Peru.

Owners Marion and Michael Jack cultivate their own alpaca herd at their picturesque Jacamar Alpacas farm in Torryburn. What started as just ten alpacas in 1997 has grown into an over 100-strong herd, providing luxuriously soft fibre from the Hunter region.

"Alpaca wool is incredibly soft yet warm and lightweight," says Marion.

“When people visit our stores, they are amazed by its exceptional quality. Not only is it incredibly soft and warm, but it's also hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and environmentally friendly. It's the perfect choice for those who want to enjoy comfort without compromising ethics or quality.”

“If traditional wool makes you itch, alpaca is the perfect alternative." The Australian Alpaca Barn's three Hunter Valley locations—Hunter Valley Gardens, Peppers Creek Village, and the historic Morpeth township—each offer a treasure trove for alpaca enthusiasts and those seeking an indulgent winter wardrobe.

Explore racks of lush alpaca coats, sweaters, shawls, and accessories like gloves, beanies, and socks. The stores also offer alpaca home goods like throw rugs, quilts, bedding and knitting yarn. Even children can delight in plush alpaca teddy bears and silver alpaca jewellery.

Of course, Mother's Day is just around the corner, and alpaca apparel also makes an ideal luxurious yet thoughtful gift for the special women in your life. Treat Mum to supreme softness with an alpaca sweater, scarf, or homeware item she'll treasure.

Whether outfitting for winter or shopping for Mother's Day, the Australian Alpaca Barn provides world-class alpaca products and a warm experience connecting customers to this sustainable luxury fabric's origins.
