Wool Week flocks to Savile Row

Savile Row, the home of British tailoring, was turfed over and opened to a flock of sheep this week to promote Wool Week, which runs until Sunday.

The sheep were being tended to by two farmers dressed in suits by tailors Anderson & Sheppard and Gieves & Hawkes, made from English wool. Wool Week is organised by the Campaign for Wool, a cross-industry initiative convened by Prince Charles and backed by the Savile Row Bespoke Association, Woolmark International and others. Other retailers including Jaeger and Selfridges promoted wool and its uses during the week.
