A woman in a wool sweater is walking down a busy street when she’s suddenly beaten unconscious by a man who rips off her clothes. She doesn’t get any help from passersby.

This scene is eerily reminiscent of what takes place every day in sheep-shearing sheds around the world. PETA’s international exposés of shearing sheds and ranches in Australia, South America, and the U.S. have revealed that workers punch, throw, and severely mutilate sheep in shearing sheds, behavior that is normal in the industry, as workers are typically paid by volume rather than by the hour, encouraging rough work with little regard for the animals’ welfare.

With plenty of vegan wool options to choose from, including sweater and coat blends composed of animal- and eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, TENCEL®, hemp, acrylic, polyester, modal, rayon, viscose, and cotton—many of which outperform wool—there’s no excuse to spend money on animal abuse.
