As the home of bespoke tailoring in London, Savile Row is used to seeing hundreds of visitors pound its pavements every day, but yesterday the street welcomed customers of a much woolier kind, as a flock of sheep descended on the road to celebrate the start of Wool Week. Headed up by The Campaign for Wool, the event brought everyone from Bill Nighy to David Gandy to Savile Row to celebrate all things woolen. English tailors and Savile Row residents Huntsman entered into the spirit of the event, inviting visitors to tour the brand's workshops as well as offering bespoke masterclasses by Co-Head Cutter Dario Carnera, while the public had the chance to meet the animals that help create their favourite wool garments.
Running until the 11th of October, Wool Week will be highlighting the importance of wool through a series of events and campaigns, including the 'Incrediwools'- a collection of key figures working in wool today such as Wool & The Gang and Ally Capellino, and an exclusive shoot styled with wool items from brands including Harris Tweed, Holly Fulton and Jaeger, shot on location in Scotland.
