Buffalo Check Fabric for Sale
As the story goes, buffalo check, which is a two-color or three-color striped fabric in a pattern of large, equal-sized squares, has been around since the mid-1800s. It's said to have originated in the Woolrich Woolen Mills, the oldest woolen mill in the United States, founded in 1830. The millís initial product was a plaid woolen shirt that became an instant hit with workers and those working outdoors and needing protection from the elements.
