Buffalo-Bison Fiber, Are you ready to touch one of the softest fibers ever?

The 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 world’s premier luxury natural fibers

American Bison 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.
