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.
