Peikko is made of naturally brown wool and topped with a moss green pompom. Peikko is the scariest of the creatures of the woods, but our myssy peikko is one of the good kind. Peikko is Finnish and means a ”troll”.
“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.
“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 wool hats are much more than just ethically made of organic materials. They create well-being - everything is locally made here 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. Eventually the Myssy takes the shape of your own head and becomes part of you.
