Owner description: The Herd Wear Retail store is almost like a American buffalo .. or really "bison" ... museum ... but with all kinds of bison fiber and bison leather products (and bison art, shoes, rugs, knives) on display and for sale. "Herd Wear" is the brand of amazing bison fiber knit gloves, truly warm socks, scarves, soft and non itchy knit hats and more. What a tribute to American craftsmanship and manufacturing skills. Technological advances has made the use of American bison fiber a reality There are also "Herd Wear" American made packable felt hats and bison leather belts. Bison jewelry, sweaters, vests ... the list goes on. And most everything is made right her in America. We are located just across the road from the restored Goodnight Buffalo Ranch headquarters built in 1886; the very ranch where Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight raised up the remaining southern herd bison and kept the animal from extinction. Come browse, learn and enjoy. Darlene, Cecil and the rest of the "herd" will make you welcome and entertain you with their knowledge of this iconic American "critter" as they call the buffalo.

This store carries anything and everything associated with bison. It is a cool place! We purchased jerky and it is fantastic. Give it a look.

The items he has in his store can only be found there. All of the items are great prices. You need to stop to see.

A rare treat! Traveling from Colorado to Dallas, I took a break from driving to visit a simple-looking storefront and encountered an amazing place -- full of interesting high-quality Western merchandise, including some of the warmest clothing I've ever worn (in, of all places, Texas!). If you have any interest in the fiber arts (like spinning or knitting), or if you know of someone who does, the name Buffalo Gold should be very well know because of their quality yarns and fibers (my wife knew who they were right away when I called her). The store has expanded from fiber into clothing, artwork, and related gear. The store's owners are relaxed, amazingly hospitable people who obviously love this line of work, and visiting with them was a delight.
Plus, they are near a buffalo herd and the justifiably historic Goodnight museum. If you are anywhere near the area, it's worth stopping by just to look and say hello. The merchandise is wonderful and it makes gift-shopping easy. Sure glad I stopped.

Love this store! So many beautiful and amazing buffalo and western items.... Cecil is great to visit with and they have a buffalo herd right outside. Be sure to take some buffalo jerky with you when you leave, it is fantastic. The Charles Goodnight Historical Center is right down the road and also a must do on a trip up Hwy 287.

We really love this store. It is more than worth the stop,and we do every time we are passing through. You feel like you are in a museum/art gallery. It is an ever evolving delight. We always look for unusual well made gifts. The owner could not be any more knowledgable or welcoming. Enjoyed seeing the bison herd as well.
