Is your best cashmere sweater actually made of rat fur?

This is horrific, both for the animals suffering for these counterfeit clothes and the people unknowingly wearing them!

Following a year-long investigation into counterfeit goods, it was revealed that the clothing products seized by the police were made up of  ” a mixture of acrylic, viscose and fur from rats and other animals”.

A number of arrests have been made in Rome and police also seized many counterfeit merino wool and silk products.

We can’t help but wonder what “other animals” the police could be talking about…
