PULLING THE WOOL OVER SOMEONE’S EYES goes back to the days when all gentlemen wore powdered wigs like the ones still worn by the judges in British courts. The word wool was then a popular, joking term for hair … The expression ‘pulling the wool over his eyes’ came from the practice of tilting a man’s wig over his eyes, so he couldn’t see what was going on.
