The meaning of the phrase “Pull the wool over someone’s eyes”
Generally, this expression can be traced to the powdered wigs which were the custom in the early nineteenth century – the “wool”, having fallen down over a man’s eyes, would temporarily blind him.
While today’s judges favour horsehair and would never be caught dead in an ill-fitting rug, their predecessors often wore poorly fitted wigs, and many a barrister boasted about pulling the wool over the judge’s eyes.
