It is estimated that every year over 10 million merino lambs in Australia have their rear ends sliced off, often without pain relief. This process, known as mulesing, is a painful solution to a painful problem - flystrike. But did you know merino lambs can be bred with smooth skin, eliminating the need for mulesing without farmers having to sacrifice wool quality or quantity?
Many retailers and brands are now eliminating mulesing from their supply chains, and you can encourage more to do the same by adding your name to the below petition asking retailers to stop using mulesed wool.
Want your favourite brand to stop using mulesed wool? Add their name into the box below and we will be in touch with them to discuss a commitment to phasing out mulesed wool!
