Chinook Winds Bison Yarn and Fiber is your source for bison (buffalo) blend yarns, roving, felt, and hand-dyed woolen yarns.
"Bison Yarn.......Because It's Beautiful"
Chinook Winds harvests fiber from bison, or buffalo as they are commonly called, then blends the fiber with varying amounts of alpaca and/or wool. We produce yarn and roving plus an array of handfelted items.
All fibers come from animals
raised on North and South Dakota, Montana, Minneosta, Wyoming and Canadian ranches. The fibers are
processed at regional and US owned mills.
Once the fiber is returned from the mill, it is sold in its own beautiful natural colors or kettle-dyed and handpainted in deep rich tones.
