TOKYO – Following in the footsteps of Marks & Spencer, Japanese fashion titan Uniqlo has vowed to ban the use of alpaca wool from its collections after a PETA exposé highlighted instances of gross misconduct at the world’s largest privately owned alpaca farm, situated in Peru.  

Undercover work by animal rights group PETA at the site of Mallkini showed how workers slammed alpacas onto tables and tied them to stretching devices as their legs were all but torn from their sockets.  

PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman says: “Uniqlo's decision will go a long way in helping to prevent vulnerable alpacas from being abused and shorn bloody for their wool.”
