All the brands below have public positions against mulesing, a cruel mutilation of merino lambs. Together these brands show that the fashion industry is largely opposed to mulesing. Some of these brands have gone a step further by setting a concrete commitment to a step-wise transition towards only using certified mulesing-free wool and others have phased out animal derived materials completely to prevent animal suffering.
Certified mulesing-free comes from wool growers who have never practiced or have stopped practicing this outdated and unnecessary cruel mutilation. For more info on what mulesing is read here.
