Ultra-fine Wool

Sheep bred especially for ultra-fine wool are kept indoors 24-hours a day for up to five years. This is justified as a way to protect the ‘quality’ of their wool from the elements.

Chronic stress is evident by their continual chewing of their wooden slat fencing and other repetitive behaviours.

Despite a Code of Practice stating that sheep unable to adapt to indoor conditions should be returned to grazing, this rarely occurs, because the definition of ‘unable to adapt’ is too vague.
