Warm & Wonderful recently celebrated the sweater’s release by sharing a behind-the-scenes video on YouTube, where the founders shared their origination story.
“We started with six samples, one of which was the sheep jumper,” Osborne said. “So, it was really one of our very first designs. I think the one black sheep made it stand out. It made it different.”
According to the designers, Princess Diana wasn’t the only celeb who liked the quirky jumper. “David Bowie is reported to have wanted one,” Osborne explained. To which Muir added, “Andy Warhol—he walked past our stand and went, ‘Oh. Chic sweater.’”
When asked why they’re bringing back the sheep jumper, Osborne replied, “The time is right.”
