Uniqlo becomes the latest brand to ban alpaca wool

Uniqlo has banned alpaca wool, following a recent exposé released
by PETA.

The animal rights organization had found a pattern of mistreatment
in several alpaca farms, and its investigation has inspired several
retailers to cut alpaca wool out of its offerings.

Uniqlo joins a roster including Overstock, Marks & Spencer, Maison
Numen, Smith & Caughey’s, and Esprit in banning alpaca fiber.

“Uniqlo’s decision will go a long way in helping to prevent
vulnerable alpacas from being abused and shorn bloody for their wool,”
PETA’s executive vice president, Tracy Reiman, said in a statement.
“Kind consumers can do their part to reject this cruelty by opting for
vegan clothing, which no animal had to suffer for.”
