Made from the authentic silky 'Fellowship Cloak' fabric as used in the The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
'Authentic Grey' colour
When Cheryl and Barry Eldridge of Stansborough looked to diversify the farming activities on Stansborough, their New Zealand sheep station, twelve years ago they never knew the results would be seen on the cinema screens around the world. The homegrown woven wool from their flock of unique sheep was used by the lead characters appearing in the blockbuster The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
These scarves will ship directly from New Zealand to locations all over the world.
A quality scarf for hobbits and non-hobbits alike.

I received the scarf a few days ago and have yet to fully put it through it's paces, but already it is looking to be a winner.
The feel of the scarf is amazing, very rustic but smooth and comforting at the same time - you really get a sense of the traditional.
Don't let that put you off though - this scarf looks very fashionable and will work well with many outfits. I tested it while wearing a simple black t-shirt with a white and red logo, and cream-coloured jeans, and it integrated quite nicely. It will look quite modern when worn alongside your modern clothes - but on closer inspection it has a very interesting weave/colour pattern that is sure to draw positive attention to the wearer.
The scarf is very well made, and although on the sides the threads can be pulled and unravelled (with considerable effort), I am sure this is typical of most scarfs and a necessity of the weaving process, and unless one intentionally tries to do this, it shouldn't prove to be an issue. Other than that, the scarf is very solid, even when stretched.
Another thing that surprised me was the thickness of the scarf. The scarf is very thin, but I wouldn't go so far as to say this is a negative - the scarf still feels very warm when worn, and the thinness doesn't seem to have affected overall strength or durability.
On the issue of price - while some may feel the cost is too high, I think it is quite justified, seeing as this is fairly exclusive wool and is made in a very skilled and professional way, along with the fact that this is a quality piece of movie memorabilia.
In closing, I would recommend this scarf to people who are in need of a new scarf, a fan of the Lord of the Rings, or pretty much anyone for that matter.
I'm looking forward to wearing this everywhere I go in the future - it looks like it should last me a while yet. Hide.

I bought this a few years back on a visit to the Weta Cave and it's without a doubt my favourite scarf!
The fabric, weave and colours of the scarf are absolutely beautifyl, a mix of silvery grey and moss green that I love. Plus it's a little piece of the Fellowship cloak fabric which is, well... awesome!
The fabric is thin but still very warm. I've had mine now for about 4-5 years and it's holding up well so it will last you for a good few adventures. It's quite a short scarf so if you need it to wrap around lots of times then it's probably not ideal.
All in all, this is a wonderful scarf, far superior to any standard machine-made scarf you would normally pick up. It's elegant, warm and goes with any outfit. Plus I feel particularly Tookish when wearing it! Well worth every penny! Hide.

UK buyers beware. This scarf cost me an additional customs charge of £16.99 which was VAT plus £8.00 Post Office handling fee. The scarf is great and is a really nice way of connecting with the Lord of the Rings films; also this is in no way a criticism of Weta, I just thought a heads up on potential extra costs would be of help to buyers.
