Yes, they do. The sheep are raised for the uggs and are not used for meat also. Eight sheep are killed to make an over $100 pair of boots

Anything that says it is made from “sheepskin” is made from sheepskin. Many people think they are slaughtered just for the sake of slaughtering them to make beautiful things, but it is an ancient practice to slaughter an animal for food and use the skins and furs for other uses. People even use sheepskin for medical purposes.

You can learn more at sheepskintown about it. I did not realize people used sheepskin for medical conditions or to prevent them.

I think you'll find you friend is either playing a joke on you, or she is just extremely dim. Or she herd it from someone else who is wrong. You are right about the sheering of the coat, but they do not, I repeat do not, kill the sheet to get there coats.

You are the dim one. Im sorry but uggs kill the sheep. Go to the website and it says PREMIUM SHEEP SKIN. You cannot take a hide off a sheep without killing it or putting it through extream pain. So they are KIND and end their lives. Look it up. Sheep are not just giving away their skin. You Ansergirl11 are very stupid and should give an accurate answer to someone who just wants to know if they are killing sheep. So to answer your question Heyhihello 8 sheep are killed to make every pair of uggs. Your friend is right. Also, even if wool was only used in uggs, wool is obtained in increadibly cruel ways. Check PETA but only if u r prepared to hear the no BS truth. It is gruesome.

Your wrong. SheepSKIN is made from the skin of sheep, when the sheeps are slaughterd for their meat, instead of wasting the skin they use it to make things like UGGS or purses or whatever, so they're not just killing sheep for the skin, the sheep are already being killed for their meat, just like cows, but the use cows skin to make leather.
