Quick facts about Bison fiber The hairs are made up of five hairs, the outer guard hairs are hollow, course and a micron count that starts at 21 and go upward. But it is the super-soft undercoat of the downy hair that we use for our premium bison down products. The "down" micron count is between 14-18. The hair contains no lanolin, which is the source of many wool allergies, making it an excellent allergy-free fiber. Buffalo down is a very warm, insulating fiber that is warmer and more comfortable to wear than sheep's wool.
