No. What's is about? What genre (fiction, scifi, etc.) is it?

Re: A fellow legionaire
No way! How in the world did you find me? Too funny, really.

I tried to post the following as a comment to Viator, but that journa;l is locked up. Oh well:

Kane and 'Lissa are everywhere *wicked grin and evil cackle*

They are the reason that Shadow Legion (and previous households) exists - Moose and Bri used to be Kane's squires.

I recognized your icon as you and your journal's name is a bit of a giveaway. I hoe some day to meet you IRL or well as close as we get at events *smile* Oh and your boots really did look wonderful. I may have missed it on list, are you able to come to con?

the weave? eyebrows?

lately, i've been pondering the weave used in the LOTR
movie for the elven cloaks - it looks like silk mohair,
and the odd repeating pattern is mesmerizing. i want,
i crave, precious fabric :)

i'll buy a loom if i have to, i will :)

[oh, yeah, i followed a link of a link and wound up
here and you have very interesting interests :>]

FYI - no silk, just wool
From: Cheryl Eldridge <stansborough@xtra.co.nz>

I am Cheryl and my company, Stansborough Fibres wove the fabric for the
'Lord of the Rings' Movie, particularly the Elven Cloak Fabric. It is our
own design and we are also the only official merchandisers of this fabric,
The Article in the 'Spin Off' Magazine last year, was about the special and
unusual sheep we breed for our worsted fabrics. We also have a herd of
alpacas whose fibre we use for this purpose also.

We have our own commercial looms and weaving mill in Wellington, where we process and finish all of our products from fibres grown on our large farm. We have our own Gallery in Auckland.

The fabric design is copyright for obvious commercial reasons and we are
sorry, but we cannot give out the actual construction of this design. We
have had many enquiries, but it is a very special design and was created by
ourselves. It is made using the natural shades of our grey sheep,
'Stansborough Gotlands' using the dark and light shades in the warp and weft weaves. It is a three dimensional and made from our fully worsted undyed yarns. We sometimes use our alpaca worsted yarn in combination with this design, which works well.

The fabric is usually commercially finished for us to enhance the silky
lustre of the fibre and handle and drape of the fabric. This can change the
finished affect quite remarkable depending on the end product required.
I hope this helps with your enquiry and if you need any further help, please do not hesitate to contact us further.

We do sell the fabric, throws, wraps and scarves direct to keen LOR
enthusiasts all over the world in this special magic,' Lord of the Rings'
Design.
Thanks for your enquiry and Happy New Year.
Regards
Cheryl

Re: FYI - no silk, just wool
ooh - most most excellent my Lady (bows) and my thanks :)

a costumer friend of mine quipped "it probably comes from some exotic
local where it costs and arm and a leg to fly to and would be worth
the trip"

regards the other URL - i just did a google on the company name and that's
the first hit... aquiring some of this stuff is now my mission!

by the by, i got an airplane blanket with an interesting blue-green color
and reminds me a lot of the cloaks. hmmm :>
