Let's start with the heaviest & thickest bison sock, and work down to the lighter weight performance socks.
If you are looking for a thick, heavy, ultra-warm, working, playing, have to be outdoors, hunting, hiking, fishing sock, sitting in the bleachers, or standing on the dock socks, that would be our Trekker Boot Socks.
Next Up is our Technical Boot Sock. Medium weight, 50% Bison 50% Silk.
Skiing, skating, snowboarding, riding, snowmachining? have allergies to traditional sheeps wool, or looking for professional quality performance and warmth, without much bulk? Need something with more form fitting, control? Wicking and designed to breathe our Pro-Gear Boot Socks are the most insulating/durable/ lightweight sock we make. No heavier than a tube sock, but won't leave you cold, clammy or stinky. Stay warm, play hard.
American buffalo (or bison) live in harsh climates. The same fiber that keeps them comfortable in subzero temperatures produces bison wool socks that will do the same for you. They’re great for hiking, fishing, and just being outdoors. Bison wool socks provide the same warmth and comfort that bison have enjoyed for years, and our modern techniques have only improved upon the time-tested formula.
Most types of materials used for socks will feel wet after getting even slightly damp. Bison wool feels dry long past that. You can wear them knowing that your feet won’t feel wet for ages after being outside in the rain for only a minute.
Our socks are also more comfortable than competitive materials, like sheep's wool. The softness is comparable to a good cashmere, and won’t scratch or itch. And their durability ensures they’ll continue to be soft after high wear and tear.
Despite their greater quality, you don’t need to do anything special to take care of these socks. Just throw them in the washing machine, and then right into the dryer. They won’t shrink, and they’ll feel as tough and comfortable as the day you brought them home.
We do socks
There are other bison socks on the market, but we are the only ones who start from the beginning, from raising the bison, harvesting the fiber, scour and process the down, we source our own fiber for blending, design the yarns, and work with textile technologists and sock experts to make the best quality and most effective socks possible. We do this entirely in the U.S. and stand behind every product we make 100%. We will ensure you are comfortable, happy and hope that you will help spread the word about us.
