Bison Fiber Apparel by
The Buffalo Wool Co.
Our family has been raising American bison for almost 40 years.
We’ve spent the last ten years developing a supply chain here in the U.S.A
that brings together bison ranchers, small independent mills, and local manufacturers.
We believe that by working together, we can preserve America's national mammal: the American Plains Bison.

Bison fiber basics

Soft enough to wrap a baby in, tough enough to keep a mountain man warm in a blizzard!

Its Soft... Bison down has a remarkable I-want-to-be-next-to-the-skin feel. This solid core smooth protein has a micron count of about 15, comparable to good cashmere. Squeeze a skein. No prickle, scratch, or itch. Just soft and cozy.

Its Warm... Have you ever seen a buffalo in the snow? The crimpy down creates thousands of tiny air pockets all insulating you as no other fiber. Need something not quite so warm? Try one of our blended yarns.

Its Lightweight.  The fine down is light weight but durable.  It Lasts and Lasts and Lasts From laceweight to our heavier sport yarns, they only gets softer with wear. Bison down yarns bloom a bit, creating this beautiful halo. Bison down is perfect for knitting an heirloom quality piece. But please, use your creation every chance you get. It was meant to be used.

Its Tough...   Our American bison down yarns are  Buffalo Tough.

 It started with one pair of these socks. That didn't last long, I needed more. I wear them either by themselves around the house in the evenings or in between my callused hooves and a tattered pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers while I'm at work. If it's cold and I'm lazy, I'll wear them twice before washing. They get thrown in the wash with work pants and all of my other nasty metal chip covered, gear oil stinking work clothes. They come out of the dryer with no appreciable pilling, smelling of freedom, blue skies, and ready for another day's work. On top of that - no shrinkage (something admirable in almost any situation). 

P.S. If I know you in real life and you don't love these socks, I may have to re-evaluate our friendship.

Chad Tudor - Questionable Origin

By far the best pair of boot socks I have ever worn in my 30 + years os hunting over mostly wet ground. 
I will never buy hunting socks off of the rack again. Dry, soft, comfortable, all day long in the field or on the road. I wish I could give them 10 stars.

Advantage Trekker Bison/Merino Boot Socks

I wore them every day during Kansas rifle season, both hunting and guiding. (I did wash them occasionally.) Extremely comfortable, very warm including when damp, amazingly washable. Awesome socks!
