Draft Responsible Mohair Standard: stakeholder consultation launched + webinar

In response to requests from stakeholders, a draft standard for mohair production has been developed. The Draft Responsible Mohair Standard is based on the existing Responsible Wool Standard which was released in 2016. It is structured around the Textile Exchange Animal Welfare Framework which sets out the principles and expectations that guide and connect the Textile Exchange Animal Welfare Standards.

Goals and objectives of the Responsible Mohair Standard

The goals of the Responsible Mohair Standard are to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers; ensuring that mohair comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from goats that have been treated responsibly.
