Our guest sheep, Kenneth and Terrence, will be talking to us about wool- the world’s most incredible fibre. With thanks to Ronnie Le Drew, Kenneth Cranham, The Little Angel Puppet Theatre, John Woods and Pravin Shetty.
Our guest sheep star, Kenneth, explains why fine woollen cloth is the bespoke tailor’s first choice.
Good news for sheep, for farmers and for the environment! When disposed of wool, decomposes is soil releasing nutrients back into the earth, acting like a fertiliser.
Our guest sheep stars visit the haberdashery shop in Clifford Street.
Wool fibre has a natural crimp which creates a lot of very small insulating air pockets. That is how it keeps you warm in cold conditions and in cool and hot conditions!
Our guest stars are part of a global community of sheep farmers, spinners, mills and finishers all united by The Campaign for Wool’s patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
The Campaign aims to educate as many people as possible about the incredible benefits and versatility of wool in everyday life.
This in turn, supports many small businesses and local farmers whose livelihoods depend on the wool industry.
We learn that wool is a natural biodegradable and renewable fibre, making it the perfect choice for those seeking clothing that has a minimal impact on the environment.
Our guests visit the pressing machines at our bespoke shop. Wool cloth can be shaped using pressure, heat and moisture for an even better fit.
Sheep are intelligent! Ignore their reputation, our guest sheep explain that there is much more to them than just their beautiful fleece!
Our guest comes back to the haberdashery and to beautiful materials supplied by Holland and Sherry.
Thanks again to Holland and Sherry for their Pardessus and Harris Tweed bunches- the perfect partners for Sheep on the Row.
Our star explains that sheep have excellent peripheral vision.
Our visitors tell us about wool’s exceptional durability. Merino wool fibres can be bent 20,000 times without breaking which explains why wool clothing is so long lasting.
It is now goodbye from Kenneth and Terrence but luckily not from fine woollen garments at our bespoke shop and haberdashery.
