Beefalo Wool is an item obtained by either killing a Beefalo or a Baby Beefalo, or by shaving a Beefalo with a Razor while it sleeps (by clicking them with a Razor held by the mouse cursor). It is used to make a Beefalo Hat, Puffy VestWinter Hat, and Carpeted Flooring.

Beefalo Wool also makes an excellent Fuel source for Campfires and Fire Pits. A small herd of Beefalo can easily keep a Fire Pit lit for days, and as the wool grows back, this is a good short term solution.

  • Beefalo Wool is apparently what Tallbird Nests are made out of, according to Maxwell's examination quote for the nest, "It's made of dirty beefalo hair.".
