Here at The Buffalo Wool Co., our yarn bases for all our gear is (and will always be) natural fibers. This means that the internal structure of your socks (the parts that touch your skin) will be made from bison fiber, merino wool, mulberry silk, and other 100% natural fibers.
The overall composition (the parts that touch your skin plus everything else) will include other materials like nylon or polyester. This is done to make the sock more durable and ensure that your socks work (and play) as hard as you do.

nice and heavy and doesn’t fit so tight that it is uncomfortable
Most of you know what I'm talking about-you HAVE to go out in the frigid, blowing weather, whether you want to or not. Farms, jobs, fun-you will not mind going outside while wearing this Full Head Mask-it will keep you warm & dry. I just got a few strange looks from our farm animals, but they didn't mind not being able to see my full mug. LOL
Goose hunting, nothing even comes close. Light, warm, snug and comfortable. A great product and excellent design - fully functional (and easy to keep clean, too).
very warm while snowshoeing! Keeps you dry!
Bought this balaclava for added warmth during early Spring and late Autumn hunting. It fits well under caps and hoods. Some fleece balaclavas are too dense and thick to wear under headgear. The color does a great job of hiding my white hair.
Got this rig near the end (we think) of the Nebraska hats cold so my testing isn’t yet exhaustive. Having said that, on a few am walks probably 0-20ish maybe it proved to be plenty warm. The fit is a bit tight when worn the whole way down but it’s new so I figure it’ll stretch out some. Can’t wait for next deer season to really test it but if it’s like other buffalo wool products I’ve purchased from you guys I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
This balaclava got the approval of an Alaskan dog musher. Warm and comfortable.
Took the bike out this AM , temp was 30 light wind.
Was planning a short 20 m ride , however the balaclava (lighter one) was warm enough to stay out for an hour . Head and ears were pleasantly warm , not scratchy at all, fit well under helmet.Suspect 10 degrees cooler or moderate wind would require the
heavier one .
Can strongly recommend it.
