More reason Organic wool
|Organics Supplier Practices||Common Wool Industry Practices We Appose|
|Never||Wool fibers are dipped in strong acids to dissolve residual vegetable matter.|
Sheep are bathed in toxic chemical bath with insecticides and fungicides
|Natural unbleached wool||In order to get the purest whites and brightest colors, most wool fibers are bleached and dyed.|
|Mulesing||Never||Patches of skin off the sheep (to discourage infection and flies from laying eggs in the folds)|
|Sustainability||Farmers are paid premium for wool when fowling organic farming practices. Sheep stay happy, safe and healthy.||Farmer use cost effective methods to meet a lower price point. But resulting in a lot of negatives as stated above.|
*Some Wool suppliers also meet these same practices. But have not opted not to be certified due to costs or can't be certified do to the pastures not being organic.
