oy. its ok to explain to your mom that the sheep who are raised for their wool are killed when they stop producing. not only are they killed, but many sheep end up on transport ships to the mideast where they are slaughtered for food or ritual use.
on the ships, the sheep who become sick or injured are ground alive in rendering machines or thrown overboard (alive) to drown or be eaten by sharks.

there is no happy end for sheep who provide us with wool, unfortunately.
