As with any domestic animal the welfare of the individuals is dependent on the practices of the owners. Be a conscious consumer and buy yarn that has been accredited, such as through the Sustainable Fibre Alliance, and supports herders that care for their animals and the environment upon which they depend. Other websites that can help you make ethical decisions about your yarn include, Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) and World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO).
