Wool is a magnificent product, a natural fiber that comes from a magnificent animal. We as Rial Filati deeply care about how the animal that is the source of this wonderful material is treated.
Mulesing is a practice that hurts the sheeps, and as simple as it is, we decided to not buy and deal wool produced trough the usage os this tecnique.
Thanks to this de facto standard in the wool industry the mulesing practice is slowly extinguishing, but it is always important to pay attention so that this will become a treat that belongs to the past.
