Watch for upcoming Fiber Show dates and visit the Catalynje Buffalo Fibers vendor booth! We will be in our same white canvas tent but have been moved to the pleasant shade on main street with other vendors. Here you can find many of your favorite buffalo fibers, “Buffy” electric spinners, bands, oilers, Buff Cuffs Socks, and other buffalo fiber gifts.
We want to thank all of our fiber friends and customers who will attend the Allegan Fiber Festival again this year on August 16, 17 ,18, 2013. We will be happy to see you and have had many of you visit our shop in Shipshewana.
It will be easier to find us there as we have hung our permanent Catalynje Buffalo Fiber Co. sign and has included YARN SHOP in the name.. It is hanging on the Courtyard of Arts directory pole which fronts on Morton St, the Historical old Main Street of Shipshewana.
Hope to see you there for the May Festival Parade on Saturday, May 5. Lots of fun, lots of people and lots of beautiful horses. They will all pass by our Courtyard. As always the Bread Box is across the street and they make their own fresh jellies as you watch.
Lots of bands and music and FUN, I can see the old carosel from their windows in their loft from my shop as I work. Don't miss the opportunity to drift back in time and visit beautiful Shipshewana and bring a child to ride on a horse with you from the long ago past.
Back by popular demand our Magic Stripes and also the Wild Colors.

Baskets of Buffalo Roving and new Spring Colors of
blending fiber in the Green Cottage. Also available

your spinning pleasure or I will hand spin it for you at
the Cottage. $10.00 an 0unce.
You’ve seen the basic sheep wool...you’ve probably even seen Alpaca fibers...but have you considered using Buffalo Fibers?
Buffalo fleece and fibers have a distinctly unique quality to them that provides strength and durability while maintaining a softness that rivals even the silky feel of cashmere. Known for it’s high insulation, the crimpy down undercoat of Bison can be used for many fine hand-knitting projects and even as a weaving yarn for small rugs.
Buffalo fiber on the left is naturally dehaired shed in the field and along their trails.
I use only the beautiful fiber shed every Spring by the magnificient bison. My batts and
rovings are processed by me without the use of any harsh chemicals. My batt on the
right is ready to be used for your favorite spinning or felting project. They are silkey and
smooth and ready for the enjoyment of preparing your own soft and warm buffalo yarns.
They are sold in the beautiful natural brown of our American Buffalo or at your request
blended with any other exotic or beautiful fiber. They are featured in my Green
Cottage Store, on line, or at our next fiber show. As they have always been $10.00 an ounce.
Catalynje Fibers $10.00/oz.
We are pleased to be able to always provide natural brown buffalo spinning roving. This roving is continually kept in stock and only uses a minimal amount of blend as a base for handling in the spinning process.
Catalynje Buffalo Fibers also offers a varying selection of blends to choose from. These hand-spun yarns can be bought or ordered in custom-blended colors to your liking or ours!
