Where do dwarves get their wonderful knitwear?

With an eye for attention to the minutest detail, Peter Jackson and his design team source for their movies with great care.  Who could forget that wonderful fabric created by Stansborough Fibres for those magical elven cloaks in The Lord of the Rings?  The same folks created Gandalf’s silver scarf for The Hobbit movies.
