Yes it’s true. You’d be surprised how many things are made in very unethical ways :grimacing: I only ever bought silk second hand, or recycled. But still, feels weird to own items made in that way.

Welcome to the no new silk club.
Too many people just say “bugs can’t feel” but as an animal biologist I have to keep saying “we just don’t understand how they feel”.
A recent study has found bumblees playing for fun, showing behaviours we weren’t aware of before.
They’re so beautiful and complex, I really adore people caring more for them :green_heart::green_heart:

Tbf I’m currently focusing on trying recycled yarns. Mostly cotton, cotton blends and acrylics to minimise my own negative impacts.
