The online fashion retailer are banning the products for ethical reasons.
ASOS is banning all mohair, silk, cashmere and feather products from its website.
The online retailer - which carries a whopping 850 labels as well as selling its own brand products - has made the announcement following a recent video from animal rights group PETA which exposed the cruelty of the mohair industry.
The company has already banned mohair, and cashmere, silk, and feathers will no longer be on their website by the end of January 2019 once all current stock has gone.
In a bid to shift the products that are being removed many items are now discounted if you do a quick search for 'silk', 'mohair' and even 'cashmere'.
Some of the reductions are as much as 50% and more and if the ethical implications don't phase you, you can really grab a bargain.

If you are wondering why these particular fabrics unethical, here's why:
PETA has commended ASOS for their decision and their Director of Corporate Projects Yvonne Taylor said: "PETA applauds ASOS for leading the charge for compassion in fashion’
"In response to PETA’s campaigns, consumers are changing the face of the industry by demanding that designers and retailers ditch animal-derived materials in favour of cruelty-free alternatives that look great without causing suffering.’
