I do not know how true this article might be. The author does not quote the source of her information nor says how she came about it.
All I can say, is I sure hope its not true or at least exaggerated. IF, this is true, and this is what they are doing with the animals, I can not imagine what they are using for dyes and how they are disposing of the leftovers. Who is going to save the planet?
I have enough good old sheep wool, alpaca and blends to keep me going for several years and my stash does not include any of this questionable cashmere.
