Buffalo!!

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season. My best Christmas gift aside from 9 (yes, 9) knitting books were two skeins of buffalo. Has anyone used this fiber yet??? From what I have seen it is amazing...you knit the garment and then felt it much like wool. However when it is felted it is even softer than cashmere! It is produced here in Oklahoma and the stuff is expensive...$52 per skein! I haven't decided what I will be making but I will post it when I do. So let me know if any have used it?!

Warm thoughts,

For $52 a skein it better

For $52 a skein it better have more than a mile to it. God forbid you make a mistake with it. Is it in natural, bleached, or dyed? Where in Oklahoma does it come from? How many weights does it come in... fingering, sport, DK, bulky? Not that I can afford such luxury, it's just that inquiring minds want to know.

Wow, you'll be all of a

Wow, you'll be all of a dither what to knit next! Choices, choices, choices.
I'd never heard of yarn from buffalo. It sounds amazing(ly expensive)
Perhaps you've started a whole new trend, Buffalo Gabe!!

Enjoy & I look forward to seeing what you create.

YOWCH!  $52 dollars!  It

YOWCH!  $52 dollars!  It better be soft.  I wonder why it is so expensive?  Maybe getting it off the animal is a little risky?
