9 Wool-Free Coats for This Season
One of the questions I get a lot is "what's wrong with wool?". Unfortunately, as with other industries where animals are raised for a profit, the interests and lives of the animals used in the wool industry are rarely considered. This video shows where wool comes from.
When I'm looking for a winter clothes I obviously avoid wool-based fabrics. I would recommend you to do the same if you don't want to harm animals.
Here is my pick of wool-free coats for this season:

Today we have no excuse for abusing animals for clothes. There are plenty of cruelty-free fabrics to choose from, including cotton, cotton flannel, polyester fleece, synthetic shearling, and many others. So you can skip cruelty and choose vegan options.
