Misha and Puff is a well-edited collection of all the best stuff, versatile wardrobe staples that are destined to become favorites for generations to come. A shawl collar cardigan that works great as a jacket, leggings that can stand alone or go under a snowsuit or dress – pieces meant to be purchased a little big and worn until they are just a tad too small.
You will notice exquisite attention to detail: the eyelet that shapes a raglan sleeve, a lapped shoulder referencing the classic baby’s onesie – all of this and more have been well considered to create beautiful pieces.
Hand knit means hard-wearing and long-lasting heirloom pieces – they will be cherished. Misha and Puff work with talented knitters in Peru as well as locally in New England. Our Peruvian knitters work from home or out of a local community knitting center in Lima with a school and daycare. They earn a fair wage that allows them to provide for their families.
Yarn is hand dyed in small batches in Peru making each garment truly unique. These custome colors are made especially for Misha and Puff. With colors inspired by Nature the hand dying process creates a beautiful depth of color that you will not find anywhere else.
Natural fibers are important for babies. Wool is naturally antibacterial and wicks moisture away from the body, so baby stays dry and cozy. Wool is also springy and holds its shape better than other fibers. The wool is washable – it will not felt up. Misha and Puff exclusively use merino, the absolute softest so it’s never itchy.
A few special pieces in the collection are made of the softest baby alpaca — chunky yet light as a feather, it makes an ideal layering piece. Alpaca is hand washable.
