It's worth a stop. You can tour upstairs and learn the process, then shop in the gift store downstairs. If you score 100% on a simple trivia quiz, you receive 10% off your purchase. There are hands on areas upstairs that make it fun for kids.

Wonderful place. Very kind and attentive women who answered all our questions. One lady took the time to explain to me how to do a new craft I was interested in. So happy we stopped in. We also took quite a few things home with us!

The staff were welcoming. As a knitter I found the self guided tour interesting to see how the wool gets from the sheep in the field to the skein. “Yarnold”, a Valais Blacknose Sheep acting as ambassador, was a highlight.

I live in Buffalo and wanted something educational to do with my son. We had a great time and he really enjoyed the hands-on activities and wool samples. He went home and played with his roving sample for days! (He's only 4) Anyway, the staff is wonderful and I love the store; I bought some great holiday gifts there. I learned a great deal about the process of raw wool into yarn. Thank you for such a fun trip! We'll be back.

This is an easy place to map to in Buffalo, Wy. It is a large building not very far off the interstate. You check in at the front counter. Amy was very pleasant. She sits you down and lets you watch two 3-minute videos explaining the process. Then they hand you a “quiz” with several questions and take you into the factory. The parts you can visit are set up upstairs overlooking the two main rooms of the factory with explanation boards that explain the various parts of the process. The last room upstairs shows the various types of wool and products that are available. If you bring your completed “quiz” downstairs you can get 10% off your purchase. Note, look on the wall next to the register. Their company was highlighted at the White House in 2018. Very cool. Lovely staff and a neat place to learn the process.

I live in Buffalo. I had company and we were looking for interesting and different things to see. We chose the Wood Mill. It was a great choice. We learned about local ranchers, a little history and all there is to know about Wool processing. Trust me, it’s way more interesting than it sounds. That’s just the beginning. The store is filled with incredibly beautiful and quality products. Hand made sweaters, hats, gloves, socks, blankets, lap covers, slippers and even little sheep for the kiddos.

This was a fun learning experience. We were not aware of the background and history of the woo/sheep industry in this area. Wow! Self-guided tour with trivia quiz and beautiful gift shop (bought some interesting stocking stuffers). Nice way to spend some time.

My wife and I stopped in Buffalo, WY for several days between traveling from the Little Bighorn battlefield to the Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and more in Rapid City, SD. Buffalo is a great town with fantastic Western history, terrific restaurants and welcoming people. My wife is a knitter and when we saw that we could take a tour of an actual knitting mill, we couldn't pass it up. For those of you who don't know, the knitting industry that was once a mainstay of American manufacturing is just about gone to overseas manufacturers. But right in Buffalo is the exception. The area around Buffalo is sheep country. Many Basque immigrants settled here and brought their sheep raising skills. About ten years ago, two local women decided to do something about the loss of business for the ranchers and then opened a knitting mill specifically to process wool from the local ranches. The result is Mountain Meadow Knitting Mill. You are greeted by a beautiful retail store with knitting wool and finished clothing items. The colors are almost overpowering. Can you imagine knowing the ranch where you wool came from? Tours are given 6 days per week and they are well worth the $5.00 charge. Our guide was Gary, the plant manager, who gave us incredible insight about the manufacturing process. He took us through every step in the complicated process and it was a hands on visit for us. Feeling the raw wool just out of the bales and then seeing the finished product couldn't have been more interesting. What is most amazing is that this company had to learn things that were no longer available in this country and even had to make some of their own machinery. (Thanks for Gary). After watching this process, I will never complain about the price of knitting yarn. This is a must stop for anyway who always wondered, "how do they do that".

Our family (including teens and younger children) loved this tour!!!! The tour is very educational and is provided by the business owner herself. You get to see every step in the process from raw shorn wool to finished yarn. You walk among the machines and see them working. This is extremely educational. The only thing I would change is to have the tour last longer! Plan on spending an hour or so. The price is well worth it, and this is a great activity if you are near Buffalo!!!

This was a very informative and interesting stop. We were grandparents and grandchildren 50's, 60's, 8 and 10) and everyone had fun.
Due to COVID, the tours were all self tours. They had a nice video to start with that explained about the history of the region and how wool become yarn. Then you walked yourself through the upper level of the mill where you could look down on the mill floor. There were plenty of informational signs to tell you about the different processes. They also had a very fun room for the kids (and us) to try weaving and carding and spinning wool.
The store was very well stocked, too :)
