London's Savile Row, home to Britain's top tailors, was turned into a grazing meadow on Monday, with a flock of sheep filling the street to help raise awareness of the wool industry.

Traffic was halted, turf was laid out and Bowmont Merino and Exmoor Horn sheep were brought in to help mark the start of Britain’s Wool Week, which runs until Oct. 11.
