Maahinen is made of natural white wool and topped with a mint green pompom. Finnish folklore is full of these little creatures that live under ground and are rarely seen. They hold magical powers and shall be respected. Maahinen is Finnish and means an ”imp”.
“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.
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.
