What’s New Buffalo Wool Co?
What’s New Buffalo Wool Co?
What’s New Buffalo Wool Co? was the big question of the day for our sponsors of the Yarn Thing
podcast with Marly Bird, and Ron Miskin was here to share with us, calling in from an event in Harrisburg, PA. Yes, while on the road!
The Original Buffalo Wool Company was chartered in 1821 by the Hudson Bay Co. in Red River Manitoba, headed by Lady Selkirk, the wife of the then governor.
The plan was to harvest bison fiber and make ladies hosiery They were founded and funded with £5000,and after spending almost 4/5th of that investment on rum, proceeded to go bankrupt fairly quickly. Fast forward 190 years, The BWC was revived both in name and spirit by Theresa & Ron Miskin. Ron an ex-restaurateur and Theresa, a public housing councilor. Ron and “T” have spent the last 10 years traveling around the globe as “bison ambassadors” showing off the beauty and benefits of bison and bison fiber.
Follow more adventures with Buffalo Wool Co through their website, www.theBuffaloWoolCo.com as well as their Facebook page, and their products can be found in Amazon as well.
