Every Thread a Scream

So soft and cuddly. So pure. So lush. But totally unnecessary. There are so many man-made materials nowadays available that can reproduce the same softness, making this kind of torture completely outdated. And the man-made materials are wearable by everyone, including those allergic to so many animal products.

“French Connection has made the heartless decision to resume its sales of angora, despite being fully informed of the fact that angora is torn from the bodies of live rabbits. Rabbits scream in pain when their fur is ripped from their bodies, and they need your help today! Rabbits who have their fur cut or sheared instead still suffer greatly: Their front and back legs are tethered tightly, and they’re stretched out on boards or suspended in the air. The cutting tools that are used invariably wound the rabbits as they struggle to escape. Afterward, these highly sensitive, social animals are left in shock—they lie motionless inside their tiny, filthy cages, where they’re denied solid flooring and bedding.”
