Woven in natural brushed Stansborough Grey Wool
'Stansborough Greys' are a very rare breed of sheep. They have a beautiful soft grey fleece, and they are the only ones of their kind in the world.
Cheryl and her team create a range of blankets scarves and throws using the carefully grown graded and spun wool from their flock and then woven on looms that are as rare as the sheep themselves. The looms, that came out to New Zealand in the early 1900’s , were developed in England in the 1890’s to make fine worsted textiles and are themselves masterpieces of design and engineering. These were among the very first commercial worsted looms manufactured, at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and have the ability to still create heirloom textiles from a bygone era.
