Where do dwarves get their wonderful knitwear?

February 12, 2013 at 3:14 pm by greendragon  - 

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.

But just where did Ori get his amazing woollies?  Who (apart from those elusive dwarf women!) knits for dwarves?  A fascinating (and quite technical) article in Knitting Daily, sourced from The Wheel magazine, sheds some light on how the yarn for the films was created.  Read the article here – thanks to ringerspy String for the heads up!
