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
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.
