Master weaver explaining the shuttle and bobbin for a turn of the century loom

September 25th, 2017

 


Photos from our recent (August 2017) vacation to New Zealand with stops in Wellington and Dunedin.

Master weaver explaining the shuttle and bobbin for a turn of the century loom.

Stansborough LTD Woolen Mill, Petone, Lower Hutt, New Zealand.

This small and unique mill produced fabric for costumes for The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Narnia and more. They raise their own unique sheep herd that produces naturally colored wool in a variety of shades from black to gray to white.

You can get an overview of what they do and see their turn of the century looms working on their factory tour.
