We are stocked and waiting for you as the "Bash" is getting closer! Need antique store displays, store decor or some of our Herd Wear signage? ... it all has to go and I am motivated to listen to offers. Still looking for ticket/donations - $50 - that gets you the same "swag bag and goodies" ... lunchtime dogs, corned brisket, burgers etc. See you in Goodnight, Texas .... one last time.
Yes, folks ... BIG NEWS. The Texas Historical Commission has bought the store in Goodnight. We will be there through the end of July, 2024 ... and then on line or by phone. No; we are not "quitting" - HERD WEAR will continue. Be sure you are on our email list and also on Buffalo Wool Co's list.

"Close to the Ultimate" Boot Socks


These are the very last of one of the best socks every made. 

Choose the "Close-To-The-Ultimate" boot sock for extreme warmth and as-good-as-it-gets moisture regain properties  (the ability of a fiber to hold water without feeling wet or clammy). Bison down has a moisture regain 12 times greater than comparable wool.

They are exceptionally durable, and perfect for non-exertive outdoor activities such as still hunting, winter wade fishing, cold-weather equipment operation, snowmobiling.

Machine washable. 28% Bison/28% yak/27% nylon/14% silicon polyester/3% Lycra spandex. Full terry-loop knitting. Nylon over-plating for abrasion resistance. Knit exclusively for Herd Wear/Buffalo Gold by Cabot Hosiery, Northfield, VT.

(Oh ... we do not know what the "Ultimate" boot sock might be .... but we are working on it. Until then, this is as warm, as durable and as comfortable as it gets ... promise!)

Love all the things I purchased from Herd Wear, the boots are extra warm and comfy the belt fits great and I have had many compliments while wearing it also the bag is so special. Love all the things.
Turns out shipping was not as much as they thought so I even got a credit back on my visa.
Extra great company to deal with.

Carolyn B.
Best Socks Ever!

I am always impressed by a new pair of buffalo wool socks and the "close to the ultimate" boot sock is right up there as my new favorite boot sock. I always think they will be too bulky but they compress and form to my foot and boot and they keep my feet warm and dry in pretty much any conditions. Love these!

Carolyn: Thank you ... enjoy and stay well, warm and safe.
