Rk3 - glad I'm not alone! I'm a card-carrying vegan of 5 years. I can't help but like the natural aesthetic of a sheepskin, but then my morals/ self control step in. I mean its not like we went vegan initially because we just hated the taste of bacon. I'm against animal and human exploitation, but I have secondhand leather in my closet, and on a chair. I know PETA would probably drum me out of their club for that. I also have a beautiful faux cowhide rug under my coffee table from Z Gallerie (it sounds terrible, but it's pretty great). If the right secondhand sheepskin came along, I would snag it. I don't have time to worry about what other vegans think of me, or whose compass I'm following other than my own. As for IKEA's source, I have a hard time believing that such a high volume of a consistent product comes from a bunch of old sheep. It costs more to wait for a sheep to get old (all the while keeping his/her skin healthy and youthful) than to turn and burn yearlings.
