Wool Week runs from October 15th - 22nd and is designed to promote the use of wool. There are over 30 million sheep in the UK but wool sales are in decline. We have worked with expert knitter and furniture designer Melanie Porter to create a unique window display in our Dover street flagship.
Here is a pic of her lovely window, as you can see pretty much everything in sight has been knitted by Melanie to support the British Wool campaign.
Today and Friday 19th October Melanie is GIANT KNITTING in our windows so come down and take a snap of her!
Wolf & Badger are proud to provide a vibrant selection of clothing (often made with 100% wool) demonstrating the diverse results from this natural resource.
