Myssyfarmi is a farm-based design company from Pöytyä, Finland, known for its funky Myssy wool hats and award-winning food products. It all started when Janne, a top world windsurfer at the time, was injured and searching for a new direction in life. He took over his family farm but wanted something more. While skiing with a friend in Switzerland Janne's friend wore an incredibly soft, handwoven beanie. He wanted one for himself but she wasn't about to hand hers over. Janne was determined to knit his own and found himself as a student at a local village cafe, where a group of elderly woman met regularly to knit together.

|The lightly handwashed organic Finnsheep wool has 5% of lanoline left in it, which makes it extra soft and nice to the skin. The colors are all natural dyes.|
