You may have seen PETAs’ recent video revealing the mistreatment of many sheep which were the sources of Patagonia’s wool.
”A gut-churning PETA video exposé reveals that life is hell for lambs and other sheep exploited for so-called “responsibly sourced” wool. A witness found workers in Argentina hacking into fully conscious lambs, starting to skin some of them while they were still alive and kicking, and otherwise mutilating, abusing, and neglecting lambs and sheep on farms in the Ovis 21 network—Patagonia’s wool supplier.”
Below is the PETA video released in 2015, filmed in 2014.
Warning – Graphic*

Update: Patagonia have responded to the released video, going beyond apologizing, and saying that it will not buy more wool until it can extract certain assurances from its supplier.
