It is important to emphasize that all our products are mulesing-free. Mulesing is a very painful, albeit effective, method of preventing certain types of vermin from getting into the sheep's wool as they grow up. It involves cutting crescent-shaped flaps of skin around the sheep's chest and tail using sharp scissors specially designed for the purpose. This is supposed to reduce certain vermin problems in sheep. This is NOT a method used in LOOW products.
Mulesing is not allowed in New Zealand, where we source our wool. So for that reason alone, it is not something that occurs with our products.
Our yarn supplier also commits all their raw wool suppliers not to use the practice. All suppliers live up to the "5 freedoms of sheep"
