Pure Buffalo (Bison) - Roving
We have worked hard to produce the purest, softest, finest pure American bison down, with the longest staple length possible. The fibers have been doubled scoured, and carefully dehaired removing all VM (vegtable matter) along with all guard hairs to bring you the softest buffalo fiber available.
We are only able to process 4-6 oz of fiber per animal making this a true treat to spin. So try this rare, super-soft spinning fiber today! Sold in 1 oz or 1/2 oz bags
I am a handspinner who enjoys spinning fibers from animals around the world. I was delighted to discover bison cloud from your magnificent bison raised here, in the USA. How delightful it was to sample this exceedingly clean, exquisitely soft cloud right out of the bag it arrived in--no hair, no chaff, no dust--only pure fiber. It spins beautifully with only gentle teasing to draft the fine fibers. My guess is that yarn from bison down will form a halo, as does musk ox qiviut. I look forward to blending the bison cloud with a touch of wild silk to add a golden shimmer to its rich, brown color. Well done, Buffalo Wool Company!
So soft! Beautiful and clean bison fiber. Can’t wait to spin it up. What a treat!
Soft and lovely. I have processed raw bison fiber by hand and it is a LOT of work. I am happy that I treated myself to this bag of luxury.
The down is really soft. I was blending 9 grams with a couple oz's of Icelandic wool today. Unless I was blending wrong it liked to stick to the feeder. Solution! I spread the down on top of the top I was going to blend then turned it all over and no sticking. Next time I will use a higher percentage of down to wool. I am thinking also of using my Blackfoot spindle to spin some, maybe Navajo ply the result. It might be best to ply on the fly with the Blackfoot spindle. I really like the Cloud down
This was exactly what was described. Blended with Alpaca to get some long fibers into the final yarn. Can wait to spin this up and knit some hunting gloves for my husband.
The buffalo down is so soft and a beautiful shade of brown. The service was very fast.
This is the perfect gift for a spinning friend. Present the lovely bag and wait for the ecstatic response!
