About Stansborough

Twenty years ago, Cheryl and Barry Eldridge looked to diversify the farming activities on their Wairarapa sheep station, Stansborough. They obtained a small flock of rare grey sheep, originating from a small island off the coast of Sweden, and a herd of Alpacas. Over many years of selective breeding and hard work, the flock of blue-grey sheep number over twelve hundred and have wool that is unusually silky, soft and lustrous. ‘Stansborough Greys’ are now registered as a wool breed in their own right, and are the only sheep of their kind in the world.

The Eldridges personally attend the shearing, hand sorting and grading of the fleece of each animal. After the fleece has been professionally worsted spun, the yarn is then woven at their own historic weaving mill. The looms, that came out to New Zealand in the early 1900s, were developed in England to make fine worsted textiles and are ideal for creating beautiful heirloom textiles from a bygone era. 100% grown, inspired, designed and created in New Zealand, the end product is totally natural and eco-friendly; from the sustainable way the animals are farmed, right through to the hand finished textiles. The fibres used are in totally natural or biodegradable overdyed colours only.
