The campaign: wool with butt

This is the story of a chic, fluffy wool sweater. It belonged to a lamb. And this little lamb had a butt.

They once lived in Australia, which is where 90% of the fine wool used in the clothing industry worldwide comes from.
But the fluffy lambs have natural enemies. Flies that lay their eggs in the many folds of skin around the lamb’s butts. Parasites.

Mulesing / ˈmjuːlziŋ / is the method that wool producers want to prevent this fly infestation.

Australia | 2017 | Sheep and lambs on a farm with mulesing practice. Mulesing is the removal of strips of wool-bearing skin from around the breech (buttocks) of a sheep to prevent flystrike (myiasis). Here: mulesing practice.

They strap on the little lamb, who is a few weeks old, and cut off the skin around his but. This is done with scissors and usually without anesthesia.

Australia | 2017 | Here: Mulesed lambs next to their mother sheep

The lamb suffers for our clothing. The wool sweater was once part of a living being with emotions, fear, and pain.

But there is a solution: sheep that are naturally less prone to fly attacks.
Switching to these sheep is an expense for wool producers, but it is feasible.

With your signature, call on clothing brands to work with the wool industry to end the cruel practice of mulesing. Together we can rethink the industry and save countless sheep from the pain.

One more Petition on the same subject but from Humane Society International: https://action.hsi.org.au/page/47045/petition/1

And I mean…New Zealand introduced a ban on mulesing on October 1, 2018.

In Australia, there is only a voluntary ban in which each sheep farmer can decide for himself whether his sheep are mulched or not.

Many large fashion chains, including H&M, Hugo Boss, and Adidas, distance themselves from “mulesing wool”.
However, I wonder how these many and large chains can control this.

Australia is the world’s largest wool exporter, so it cannot be guaranteed whether wool that comes from this country is really mulesing-free or not.

This animal suffering can be ended for good by not buying wool.

Materials such as organic cotton, modal, hemp, or polyester fleece also keep us warm and are also a great alternative for knitting enthusiasts.

My best regards to all, Venus
