Unique sheep plays special role in the Hobbit
A SPECIAL breed of sheep found only in the Wairarapa is being used to make costume pieces for Peter Jackson’s latest film.
Stansborough Textiles owns the one-of-a-kind Stansborough Grey, whose unique grey blue wool has been used by international designers like Donna Karan and David Jones.
Owner Barry Eldridge says the buzz created by the Hobbit movie is getting their brand recognised on the global stage.
