I wear wool, do the animal people have a problem with sheep shearing? I've been trying to think about what animal products people wear on a daily basis. I have several leather belts, since leather is absolutely the best material for belts. I also have leather boots, also the best material. Wool is great for winter socks and as a lining in coats. I've had one coat for ten years, looks like shit now, but it's too comfortable to get rid of. Also, I had a coat once that had some sort of fur, maybe fox, on the inside of the hood.
I would stop wearing leather and wool if someone came up with something that was equivalent in quality, but so far all of the synthetic materials they offer irritate my skin or don't last as long. So, until Peta and co start offering non-irritating, durable alternatives, I will continue wearing animal skin on my feet.
