That Angora Sweater Is Made With Horrifying Pain, Just For YOU.


Dear Wonderful Reader,
I present this to you with a sad heart and though it is more comfortable to turn a blind eye to all the animal cruelty that is around us, we owe it to those vulnerable and voiceless creatures to be their voice and stand up for them.

    1. Totally agree!!!. I actually found out because I looked into the tag in one of my sweaters and was really upset when i saw “rabbit hair”. Wish I never bought it, but yep lesson learned.

      1. the worst is that many angora sweaters anyway land in the trashcan after a short time, they are super sensitive and they are far away from “was-n’-wear” :o)
