Näkki is made of light brown organic wool and topped with a hand-dyed deep blue pompom. This creature was the guardian of a river, lake or a sea. Näkki was used for scaring the kids of the dangers of water. However, Näkki might also be the one that kept them safe from the dangers.
“When the darkness takes over in November, there are only a few hours of daylight 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 is made of 100% organic Finnsheep wool provided by their 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 colour 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-coloured Finnsheep wool by Anna Vasko.”
1. All myssys are all unique and though the grannies have this same chart, not all myssys size M is precisely the same.
2. Wool is a stretching material that will adjust to the size of your head. After a few weeks of use, your myssy fits you perfectly.
3. There is no "one right size" for you, it also depends on your preference: Would you like your myssy small or large?
All Myssy garments are handmade in Finland with high-quality yarn. Myssyfarmi gives all products a lifetime warranty. If the product ever breaks down, it will be fixed or replaced with a new one.
Wool is a natural material that keeps itself clean. The lanolin - wool’s grease - repels both dirt and water. You can freshen up the garment by airing it out. However, if your Myssy product does get dirty or stretches out, it can be hand-washed with care or machine-washed on a high-quality wool program. The garment should be dried ﬂat and shaped while still wet. This way the product will recover its original appearance.
If your Myssy product ever breaks down, it will be ﬁxed or replaced it with a new one. Simply mail the product back to the farm with a Warranty Repair Form which can be downloaded from this page. However, Myssyfarmi is not responsible for direct, incidental or consequential damages for any reason.
Please note, that the two following occasions are not covered by the warranty: stretching and felting. The Myssy product stretches to match your head/body, which is one of the attributes of the wool we use. If you want that the product takes more of its original shape, wash it carefully following the instructions and shape it while it’s still wet. Also if your myssy product becomes felted due to the hard rubbing or improper use, it is not covered by the warranty.
Your Myssy product will serve you long!
