  1. Taxidermy made out of cashmere sweaters wouldn’t be vegan. Cashmere sweaters or any type of wool jumpers aren’t vegan.

      Hey K-bobo,
      thanks for the input!
      You’re totally right, thanks for pointing it out to me. My red thread in the post above was a more ”animal-friendly” alternative to real antlers and real taxidermy. Cashmere does not involve any killing of animals, but the material does in fact from from goats and the vegan/vegetarian alternative would be synthetic fibre. Sorry about mixing things up! All the best / ScrapHacker
