It depends on the position being taken by particular activists. It is a worthy note that our sheepskins are produced as a by-product of meat production and no sheep are killed specifically for the skins. This is very a different situation to animals being farmed for the purpose of producing fur garments. Some people thoroughly object to animals being used for meat, fibres, skins or milk and we expect that a sheepskin will not be acceptable to those who hold such views.
