Wandering Middle-earth’s winding paths is the travelling conjurer Gandalf, known by many names to many peoples in many lands, though few could guess the true extent of his powers or purpose.
His fireworks may delight many a Hobbit youngster, but the Grey Wizard is no mere magician or trickster. Gandalf is old beyond reckoning and wise beyond the reach of mortal men.

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.
The Stansborough Grey sheep are some of the rarest sheep in the world!
The hats are created individually by artisan craftspeople at Stansborough using traditional methods and vintage 19th century worsted looms. Each piece is carefully hand finished and processed without the use of chemicals. Right here in Middle-earth (New Zealand).
