Where to buy Australian made woollen jumpers
Shop the finest merino fibres Australia has to offer from these leading retailers.
Australia has some of the highest quality wool on offer. We've found all the online retailers that sell woollen jumpers from your favourite brands.
There are very few brands that still manufacture in Australia and use 100% wool. In most cases wool is mixed with other fibres such as cashmere or polyester to soften the sweater, otherwise you end up with an itchy alternative. Merino is a softer option so we've included brands that have a combination and those that design here but manufacture elsewhere.

How can you tell if a woollen jumper is Australian made?
Although it isn't always clear, there are a few ways to confirm whether your next woollen addition is made right here in Australia.
- Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo. One of the easiest ways to tell where the product is made is by looking out for the green triangle logo that is usually present on either the packaging/labelling or the website itself. Anything certified with it means that the product was locally sourced and made.
- Locations of factories. For products that don't feature the AMAG, you can always check out the "About" or "Our Story" sections of the website which are prominent with smaller businesses.
- Reputable websites. Other means of verifying include having a look on the Australian Made website. Here you can search products, companies and businesses which manufacture in Australia.
Why buy Australian made woollen jumpers?
There are a few advantages that come from investing in Australian made products:
- Economic injection. By choosing to buy Australian made products you not only support small businesses but the local economies.
- Faster shipping times. Another advantage is that waiting weeks for packages is not an issue, with Express post services offering next day delivery in some cases.
- No international returns or surcharges. With buying locally, you also escape those pesky credit card surcharges and return costs.
Are Australian made woollen jumpers more expensive?
Woollen jumpers made in Australia do tend to come from the higher end brands who invest in greater quality wools. For this reason, along with ethical manufacturing, they can be more expensive.
However, we do suggest checking out locally made products as your money is more than likely to go further. With a higher quality product that will last multiple seasons, you won't have to worry about having to repurchase every winter.
Depending on your budget, what you end up buying could be seen as an investment into not only your own wardrobe but the Aussie economy.
