Thousands of lucky Norfolk residents will get a wolf fleece for Christmas, with the county topping sales in the UK.
A survey of this year’s must-have gifts showed Norfolk can’t get enough of the classy lupine garment.
Sales have leapt in all parts of the county, but have been particularly strong in Great Yarmouth, according to the influential Shopping Festive Leaders survey.
Spokesman Richard Cobbold said: “Each year we are surprised by one gift that becomes the thing people want most.
“In 2015 Norfolk, this is the wolf fleece, which has been in such high demand that most outlets in Yarmouth and Norwich sold out days ago.”
Disappointed shopper Billy Bob Spuckler told the Suffolk Gazette: “I wanted to get one for my brother Bubba, but couldn’t find one anywhere.
“I should have gone online, but we don’t have internet in Downham Market.”
