30 years ago, when Cheryl and Barry Eldridge looked to diversify the farming activities on Stansborough, their New Zealand sheep station, they had no idea the results would eventually be seen on cinema screens around the world. The unique fibre created by their flock of rare grey sheep, which date back to the Vikings, was used to costume many of the main characters appearing in the blockbuster movies ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’.

Stansborough is a Wairarapa farm, a unique breed of grey sheep, a weaving mill and an international fashion label. Operating out of a mill in Petone, Wellington New Zealand – Stansborough creates heritage woven products from the grey wool of their unique breed of Stansborough Grey sheep. Sustainable, traceable, chemical free and 100% pure NZ – from the farm, scouring, spinning, weaving finishing and packaging. 

Their flock of blue grey sheep, now have wool that is unusually durable, silky, soft and lustrous. This is the result of many years of selective breeding and hard work, producing a Stansborough Grey’ flock of over twelve hundred animals, the only ones of their kind in the world. The alpacas on the farm produce fibre which adds warmth and a variety of other natural colours to many of the end products created at their weaving mill
