Bison wool is a type of fabric gathered by animal handlers by shearing tamed bison.
Bison wool is acquired by shearing tamed bison - each bison can be sheared every 15 days for 120 wool, for an average of 8 per day.
It can also be purchased from traders.
Along with the other wools, bison wool has the second worst protective stats of any textile in the game, tying cloth in sharp/blunt armor, and only beating cloth by virtue of heat armor. But like other wools, bison wool excels against the cold, offering the 8th best cold insulation (just 2 degrees lower than 4th place muffalo wool). In comparison, its heat insulation is poor, at 19th place. Therefore, wool clothes are largely used in cold biomes, namely for parkas.
Compared to other wools, bison wool has the worst cold insulation, tied with sheep wool. Bison also eat more than sheep or alpacas, but have the worst Per Day production of all wools. However, your colony might only have bison available, which are useful as pack animals.
As furniture, it has a marginally better beauty factor than other common textiles. Care should be taken, as all wools in RimWorld are exceptionally flammable.
Contrary to wool in real life, wool in RimWorld is more flammable than cotton, rather than less.
