OK, I am not buying any more merino wool roving unless I know that it is not from Australia, because of:

A terribly inhumane practice called "mulesing"
Do not look at that picture if bloody gory animal cruelty makes you feel physically ill. I have butchered, etc, thought I could handle it, so uncovered the pic....OMG. That is just wrong in every sense of the word.

I think that if more handspinners knew about this, they wouldn't be buying Australian wool. I have no idea how wool is being grown in New Zealand, but you can bet I'm going to be looking into it.
