GNOMES, MYSSY FOR KIDS
“When the darkness takes over in November, there are only few hours of day light for playing outdoors. This is the time for storytelling, sitting by the fire indoors and reading books about the creatures of the woods. You do remember gnomes, trolls, bugbears and fairies, right? These myssys are named after special creatures of the Finnish Children’s literature.
Myssys in this collection are made of 100% organic Finnsheep wool provided by our very own sheep and their cousins at the Rintala farm. Organic Finnsheep wool is as soft as Merino wool and it has a wide natural color spectrum. This wool has been hand washed and it has lanoline –the grease of wool – left in, which makes it particularly good for the sensitive skin of children. It doesn't itch.
The pompom is made of 100% Finnish, hand-colored Finnsheep wool by Anna Vasko.”
The product is handmade of 100% organic Finnsheep wool that doesn’t itch.
About the Brand
“Our every Myssy is knitted by a real Myssy Grandma in Pöytyä. We get our unique hand-dyed yarn from our own herd of Finnsheep. Everything is organic and original in our farm and nothing is cool in Pöytyä. Except when winter hits these parts.”
Myssy* is the Finnish word for a funky wool hat and Myssyfarmi is a farm-based design company from Pöytyä, Finland. Myssy is a family business owned by Janne and Anna Rauhansuu.
The farm has belonged to the same family since the early 19th century and the brand was established in 2009 as Janne and Anna moved to the old Rauhansuu farm. The first Myssy sheep Susi, Bambi and Onni arrived a year later.
Myssy wool hats are much more than just ethically made of organic materials. The small company creates well-being - everything is locally made in Finland. The wool is from their own herd of Finnsheep, it is hand-colored by natural dyes and hand-knitted by local grannies. The Myssys are breathable and comfortable to wear year-round, plus super soft. Eventually the Myssy takes the shape of your own head and becomes part of you.
Bring color to any outfit with a Myssy.
The Gnomes Myssy is size S, 49-55 cm, fits 2-8 years old kids or adults within this size range.
