Brands against Mulesing

28.9.2020

Around the world, fashion brands are stepping up to help end the cruel mutilation of merino lambs.

All brands listed below have highlighted their opposition to mulesing, a painful mutilation practiced solely in Australia on merino lambs. Mulesing is carried out as a quick and cheap way to prevent a condition called flystrike, however with viable pain-free solutions to flystrike in existence, mulesing is not only unnecessary, it is cruel.

Many of the brands on this list, are taking additional steps to help improve transparency within their wool supply chains, and we commend them for doing so. While we’re thrilled with the progress being made, its vital more brands join this movement, so that together we can end mulesing and achieve a kinder fashion future.

Check out the list below to see if you can find your favourite brand!

If your favourite brand isn’t showing up, or listed on this page, it means we have not yet come across information which confirms that they oppose or actively reject mulesing. If you want more brands to become mulesing-free, please sign our petition.

Explanation of the two categories:

Position against mulesing: Brands in this category have a position against mulesing, they may have expressed their opposition to the practice, stated their concern or desire to move away from mulesed wool on their website, or within their animal welfare policy. This position must be published online and available to the public. We were unable to locate a published time bound commitment to phase out mulesed wool, alongside clear objectives around certification by these brands.

Strong measures to phase out mulesed wool: Brands in this category have published a timebound public commitment, setting a percentage goal to transition away from mulesed wool (e.g.on their website, within their animal welfare policy, and /or their buying guidelines). These brands have also stated their use of robust certification systems or aims with regards to achieving a certified supply chain, using traceability and transparency systems ideally comparable to the Responsible Wool Standard (e.g.: 100% RWS by 2022).

Know of a brand with a stance against mulesing that is not listed here? Please get in touch via wearitkind@four-paws.org.

Together, we can end mulesing and achieve a more ethical and kinder fashion future.
