M&S to stop selling products containing angora wool

Dec '13
M&S announces that it will stop selling products containing Angora Wool and that it has updated its animal welfare policy to remove all Angora from its supply chain.

The decision means that all production of M&S products containing Angora has stopped and stores will no longer have any stock from April next year.

Animal welfare is at the heart of the M&S business and something the company is passionate about. When concerns were raised recently by customers about the production of Angora Wool, M&S took action and conducted additional visits to the farms its suppliers buy from.

No evidence was found of the live plucking or tethering of rabbits and no evidence was found that the M&S animal welfare policy has not been adhered to.

Regardless of this, the M&S clothing technical team looked at the possibility of moving to a free range model.  Unfortunately research has indicated that this is not currently possible which is why M&S has made this announcement.
