The business of sheep shearing is just awful. I almost bought a pair of wool gloves at a local artsy store I love. Other items were made from recycled wool (the only kind of wool I will buy from now on) and I assumed that the gloves were too. But when I asked the woman who was working there, she said they were not made of recycled wool.
So, lovely as they were, I put them back on the shelves.
I will not support this cruel industry any longer:
It’s easy not to participate in what our culture calls ‘normal’ when you know what it costs the animals. You can help too-don’t buy wool and educate others on the reality these animals face.
