It's Wool Week in London right now as Prince Charles is encouraging us to realise the importance of the animal fabric. He is concerned about the dwindling price of wool commenting, "A couple of years ago I was shocked to discover that it often costs more the shear a sheep than a farmer would be paid for its wool." Yesterday, Saville Row was turfed over so that a flock of sheep could roam around. There was also a flock of bright yellow sheep outside Selfridges to highlight the department stores involvement. They are encouraging people to go in store and knit to help create a knitted house (until 17th October). Lots of stores are getting involved in the event, including Burberry, Pringle, Paul Smith, Jigsaw and Jaeger, with wool themed windows, discounts on knitwear and knitting classes.
