Ralph Lauren has agreed to stop using mohair in its products, according to the New York Post after facing pressure from the animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Report released by PETA earlier this year revealed the abuse and killing of angora goats whose wool is used in hats, sweater and other products.
Mohair is a long, smooth fiber used in sweaters, hats, and other fluffy accessories. You may recognize the word but be unfamiliar with how it’s actually obtained, but be warned: As with all animal-derived textiles, the production of mohair garments involves suffering and slaughter. Mohair originates from South Africa and the U.S., specifically in Texas.
Top clothing companies such as H&M, Zara, Gap, and Topshop were asked to stop selling mohair products by 2020, because of the the cruel practices.
