Win with wool

For what we imagine is a rather niche, though arguably worthy, operation, the Campaign for Wool has some considerable clout.

Not only did the group manage to fill the length and breadth of London's legendary Savile Row with some very dapper sheep a few months back, the campaign – which consists of a coalition of industry groups convened by HRH The Prince of Wales - also launched an online auction back in October, which comes to an end this Friday.

Featuring the best of British wool design, the auction has thus far focused on womenswear - which is strange considering the prevalence wool has in any man's wardrobe  - but, right down to the line, an exclusive bespoke suit has been added into the mix this week.

The suit, which comes courtesy of Yorkshire-based tailor Taylor & Lodge, will come cut from cloth made using the fleece of Escorial sheep, of which there are only 50,000 in Australia and New Zealand. Taylor & Lodge are perhaps best known for providing Tom Ford with the fabric he used to create a suit for Daniel Craig, which can be seen in Quantum of Solace (and which also explains the vaguely incongruous image above).

Alongside this once in a lifetime prize, the winning bidder will also be invited on a tour of the Taylor & Lodge facility in Huddersfield to witness wool fabric production first hand.

Bidding starts at just £500, so visit www.campaignforwool.org/auction now to stake your claim. The auction will close on 10th December 2010.
