LONDON – Animal welfare organisation Four Paws is to attend this year’s Wool Connect Conference and will present a letter, backed by more than 30 fashion brands and retailers, as it calls for a ban on the controversial practice of mulesing in Australia’s wool industry by 2030.   

Adidas, VF Corp, Marks and Spencer and Missguided are amongst those offering their support ahead of the event, which will run from 7-9th September.   

Paul Smith, head of sourcing and product technology at Missguided, said: “We cannot condone the use of mulesing, especially when there are other methods of controlling fly infestations, and are therefore happy to sign this letter showing our support in the phasing out of this procedure.”
