Fears fake sheepskin boots may damage wool's reputation

ABC News Online, July 13 2005

The Western Australia farmer's federation (WAFF) has expressed concerns that the local Aussie’s wool producers’ reputation is being ruined by some companies trying to sell their fake uggs as genuine Australian wool. Some manufacturers’ footwear is being labeled as 100% Australian Merino Wool lining, but is nothing more than just 100% polyester. WAFF says that the fake boots damage the credit of world renowned Australian wool and sheepskin products.
