Overview

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.

Stopped by after visiting the Charles Goodnight historic center. Although most items were well beyond our means, we enjoyed looking at the one-of-a-kind art pieces and clothing. We had no idea so much was done with buffalo. Be sure to try the sample of Buffalo...More

Very authentic western items. Art, shoes, boots, hats, many articles made from bison leather. Lots of interesting things associated with cattle drives. Worth the stop.

We sure enjoyed getting to know both of you a little; look forward to a longer "visit" next trip through. Enjoy the bison dogs and bratwursts; Continental Sausage of Denver gets the major credit. Great eats. And always, Semper Fi!!

We stopped in after visiting the Goodnight Historical Center. They have a great selection of everything from knives to coats. Many of the leather goods are made from bison. They also sell a variety of jerky, some of it bison.
