A suit made from wool donated by over 200 Australian woolgrowers to celebrate the union of Prince William and Kate Middleton has been finished in anticipation of Britain's royal wedding on April 29. The cloth is made of fibers sent from wool growing properties representing every Australian state.
From Sydney, the donated wool was scoured and combed in Biella, Italy, by Pettinatura di Verrone, before being dyed and spun at Bulmer and Lumb in Bradford. The cloth was then woven by Taylor and Lodge in Huddersfield, United Kingdom, before being tailored into a suit by Anderson and Sheppard in Saville Row.
A small sample of the final cloth will be sent to every Australian woolgrower who contributed to the bale.
