Muffalo wool is a type of fabric gathered by animal handlers by shearing tamed muffalos.

Acquisition

Muffalo wool is acquired by shearing tamed muffalos - each muffalo can be sheared every 15 days for 120 wool, for an average of 8 per day.

It can also be purchased from traders.

Analysis

Along with the other wools, muffalo wool has the second worst protective stats of any textile in the game, only beating cloth by virtue of heat armor. But like other wools, muffalo wool excels against the cold, offering the 4th best cold insulation. In comparison, its heat insulation is poor, at 19th of all textiles.

Therefore, wool clothes are largely used in cold biomes, providing almost no physical protection. While muffalo have the slowest Per Day production rate of all wools, muffalos are useful as pack animals, so colonies may accumulate wool naturally.

As furniture, it only has a somewhat improved beauty factor over plain textiles. As clothes rapidly become redundant, it may be used to improve furniture beauty and provide bulk textiles for construction. The faster production rates of sheep, alpaca or megasloth wool, may be more advantagous, but muffalo wool is nearly free if you already have muffalo. Care should be taken, as like other wools in RimWorld, it is exceptionally flammable.

Trivia

Contrary to wool in real life, wool in RimWorld is more flammable than cotton, rather than less.
