UK: Arcadia Group agrees ban on angora wool
According to the retailer's website, "angora is not to be used on any products supplied to Arcadia Group."
The move follows pressure from animal rights group PETA, which last year exposed "shocking" conditions at farms in China, where 90% of the world's angora wool comes from.
"There is no way to source angora responsibly, and we strongly encourage retailers that still buy angora wool to join the growing list of responsible retailers that have said no to this cruelty," PETA says.
