Have you always wanted that amazing Bison (American buffalo) winter hide to have on the bed or couch, for those cold cold winter nights, or just to hang on the wall in the cabin? 

A uniquely American tradition, tanned bison hide has been used to warm and decorate homes for thousands of years. During the winter the robe is at its densest and most lustrous and make for the best hides.

 Our winter bison hides display a range of rich and deep hues, from dark coffee brown to golden caramel. The fur is soft and thick, making it ideal as rug or throw to chase away the cold. Next to the hearth, for the bed or on the back of a chair, add texture and warmth to any room.

 These are prime winter bison hides,  tanned by one of the best ever tanners in the USA.  We offer two grades, the Prime hide, only the select and best are grade "A" hides, perfect for your couch, bed, or even as a rug.  They are garment tanned, and butter soft.  We also have the "Craft" grade, still beautiful, not trimmed or sewn, but with some imperfections that make them better suited towards becoming a coat, vest, or just on the couch at the cabin...

Every bison hide we choose has its own story; the natural differences found in the brands, rub marks, and scars are unique to each animal. We are often asked the best practices for caring for these one of a kind pieces. It’s easy, we promise! Here are some product care tips and tricks to ensure that your buffalo hide maintains all the uniqueness and elements that you love.

Storing Your Hide

We recommend keeping your hide outside of direct sunlight. Too much sun can damage or discolor the hair. The hide should be kept loose – compressing the piece could also cause damage. Never use plastic containers to store your hide — these can cause the hide to sweat itself and ruin the hide.

Cleaning and Care

Your hide is made for everyday use. If your piece takes a spill, spot clean as much of the liquid as you can. Then, simply use a clean damp cloth to blot the area. Cleaning solutions are too harsh for the fur, so avoid using them or saturating the piece in water. If your hide becomes matted, a heavy metal comb can be used to brush it out. We recommend a Scotch Comb for this.

If you are using your hide as a rug, we recommend vacuuming at least once a week. To avoid getting the hair tangled, we typically use the vacuum hose instead of the vacuum brush. If you prefer your hide as a wall hanging, bedspread, wrap, or throw, vacuum as needed.

Bison Robe

I purchased a Bison Hide/Robe as a Christmas Gift for my girlfriend! Of course I gave it to her early, not being able to wait till Christmas! It is beautiful and more than I ever expected! It is a beautiful winter hair hide that is in prime condition! We have it as a cover on the back of our couch. I bought a Buffalo Wool Cowboy hat earlier and love it also. I now have gloves and socks on my Christmas wish list! Thanks again it is wonderful!

The Beautiful Beast

Thirty years in the waiting, and it was worth it! Whether taking a nap on the soft fur or sleeping warm under the nicely weighted hide, it's like having a comfort beast. It is beautiful and I love it!

Speechless!

I've been eyeing these robes for a while and decided to treat myself this year. Oh my goodness! I was unprepared for the actual size of the robe. I am not large (5'3"), but I can completely wrap myself up in it and can't reach the edges when stretching out as far as I can. The quality is superb; the hide side is soft and well tanned and the fur side is thick and luxurious. I anticipate many years of enjoyment from this purchase.

Exceed expectations!

Ordered a prime hide to surprise my wife for Christmas and couldn’t be happier. She needed a weighted blanket, so I decided to get her the original weighted blanket that fits her pioneer woman style. She LOVES it! The hide is super soft, trimmed nicely and covers our queen sized bed. We’ve used it on the couch and she even wears it as a robe when she’s lounging with a book. She’s even talked about putting it in the tent when we go camping. This hide will be with us always and we could not be happier with the great product and service we received from Buffalo Wool Co. THANK YOU!!

Trekker socks

I ordered the long trekker socks. They arrived within a few days of order. They are soft, comfortable and will work wonderfully with my high linesmen boots. I’d recommend them and will be ordering more in the future
