What is it? well, most simply it is 1lb of buffalo hair, the short down and guard hair that is left when we make our yarns. Just part of our program for finding the best use for everything bison.
What do I do with it? When tilling up your garden, or filling pots for planting, just spread the fiber out as you mix up the dirt. It's is pretty simple, we recommend .5 lbs per square yard of garden plot, or 1 oz per one gallon pot. Obviously if you have more clay in your soil, you might want to use more.
Why would I want to use it? Bison fiber is a great source of very slow release nitrogen and other minerals that puts nutrients back into the soil. It also improves drainage and soil aeration. Supercharge your garden the natural way.

would like to purchase the wools and hair as it comes off the buffalo and not separated at all. is that possible? thank you
I have used this for planting indoors and outside in the garden. I have also begun to felt it.
We actually used this to make a pillow, and so far it seems great. The fibers are more burly and thick than sheep wool, so I think they are less likely to get matted.
Never heard of such a thing but decided to give it a try. I look forward to using it in my fall garden.
Bought 4 packs for Christmas gifts. My family is going to get a kick out of this unexpected gift.
I mixed the bison fiber into my flower beds and it seems to be helping to loosen the very hard clay soil. It's the only thing I've tried that has helped - and I've tried it all.
My daughter and I make Native American Dolls and use bison hair on them. This is perfect for what we want. Clean and immediately useable. We will be buying more. Thank you for prompt delivery.
Couldn't find refill wool for nesting material ball cage. Buffalo wool agreed to send 1lb bag (will last for years) at a fair price. Handled order promptly. Birds in my area of New England (Chickadees, Titmice, native sparrows) love the wool for nesting material and will empty the cage during their breeding season.
