90% Superwash Merino 10% Bison Down
Buffalo-Bison Fiber, Are you ready to touch one of the softest fibers ever?
shaggy mantle of the buffalo is composed of four different types of
guard hair and the beautiful down that is nestled beneath the coarser
hairs. The softness, fineness and strength of the down class it as one
of the worldÂs premier luxury natural fibers
down has an unmatched beauty and touch, and has become more
commercially available as the bison herds have grown. Separating the
wonderful down from the guard hair is a challenge, as is creating the
roving, clouds, batts and superior yarns from the dehaired down that
are a joy to spin, knit and weave. While others shear the hair off of
the hide, or use shed hair sloughed after the winter, our naturally
derived process of separating the hair from the hide leaves the entire
fiber and structural integrity maintained.
It is this combination
of painstaking unhairing and "hands on" processing that that makes
"Buffalo Gold" brand fibers distinctly different from any other bison
down product on the market today.
