Unique sheep plays special role in the Hobbit

Nov 12th, 2012 | By | Category: Radio News

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.

FW: I mean ….

LW: …world market.

DUR: 12 sec

Barry Eldridge says he would eventually like to market the Stansborough grey in the States, where there is already a lot of interest in the sheep.
