Bison Wool is soft enough to wrap a baby in, and tough enough to keep a mountain man warm in a blizzard! Bison down has a remarkable “I want to be next to the skin” feel. The fiber has a micron count of about 15, comparable to a good cashmere. You won’t find prickles, scratches, or itches - just softness and a great sense of cozy. Plus, the fiber is hypo-allergenic - there are no known allergies to this fiber!
Have you ever seen a buffalo in the snow? The crimpy down creates thousands of tiny air pockets that keep the animal warm. That same concept helps keep you insulated as no other fiber can. If you’re looking for something not quite so warm, try one of our blended yarns.
Fine bison down is lightweight and durable. From laceweight to our heavier sport yarns, the fiber only get softer with wear. Bison down yarns blooms a bit, creating a beautiful halo. Bison down is perfect for knitting heirloom quality pieces but please, strong enough to use your creation every chance you get.
Our American bison down yarns are Buffalo Tough.
