Animal welfare

Janusfabrikken and our suppliers fully support and work according to the principles outlined by the IWTO (International Wool Textile Organisation) guidelines for sheep welfare, which are as follows:

1. Freedom from hunger, thirst and malnutrition - through steady access to fresh water and feed sufficient to maintain full health and strength.

2. Freedom from discomfort - by providing a suitably protected and comfortable environment

3. Freedom from pain, injury and disease - by prevention, or rapid diagnosis and treatment, non mulesing.

4. Freedom to express normal behavior - by providing sufficient space, suitable facilities and company of the animal's own species.

5. Freedom from fear and distress - secure conditions and treatments imposed, avoid mental suffering.
