Do vegans/vegetarians wear wool, leather, silk?
Generally no. Most of these products are seen not just as a by-product from the meat industry, but as a profitable part of it. In fact sheep are reared for their wool, and the mutton is a by-product. Lots of alternatives are available Even if you ride a motorbike, you don’t you have to wear leather for safety, because there are plenty of synthetic alternatives, such as Cordura jackets & trousers, boots made from ‘Lorica’ and even including race approved Kevlar and body armour.
