Myssyfarmi's wool beanies, more familiarly known as Myssys, are already sold in 16 countries.

THE FINNISH MYSSYFARMI has become known for the wool hats knitted by local retired ladies. Those hats, which among friends are called "Myssy", warm heads all around the world. Now everybody has the chance to become the Myssy Granny of their own life: Myssyfarmi has released handy knitting kits that help anyone to create a warm beanie in one flick of the knitting needle.

Red Farmester knitting kit
The knitting kit has everything you need to create your own wool hat, including knitting needles. Farmester KnitKit includes 3 mm knitting needles and Muffi beanie is knitted with slightly larger 9 mm needles.

The KnitKit includes everything you need for knitting your own Myssy, and with a little help of grannies' clear instructions even the newbies will succeed. In addition to easy-to-follow instructions, the KnitKit packet includes a right amount of Myssy yarn, the knitting needles, a tapestry needle and a sewing needle, a fabric label and the wooden Myssy tag, and yarn for attaching the logo and the tag to the beanie.

The Farmester hat is inspired by farmers. The warm beanie can be worn in the fields as well as on the streets of a metropolitan city.

Muffi fits the heads of those who go their own way. A chunky woollen beanie is easy to make, even for the rookie knitters.

There are two kinds of KnitKits available. Farmester is, as the name already suggests, a tribute to farmers and the cultural heritage they pass down from one generation to the next. The woolly hat fits the head of both farmers and city dwellers, and is created in a couple of evenings. A little bit rebellious, almost rules-breaking Muffi hat is ideal especially for novices – the fastest knitters can finish this chunky beanie in one evening.

The Muffi KnitKit includes 150 grams of six-strand yarn. The Farmester beanie is knitted with two-strand yarn. All the yarn used in KnitKits is made of Finnsheep wool.

The yarn in the KnitKit package is organic Finnsheep wool. There are four different color options for both Myssys, a total of eight different colors. The wool is washed and spun at small Finnish spinning mills and hand-dyed in Myssyfarmi's own dye kitchen in Pöytyä, which is a small city in the Southwest Finland and the home of Myssyfarmi. Due to the manufacturing process, there may be slight variations in the thickness and color of the yarn, which only adds its own unique character to the look of your own Myssy.

Each knitted Myssy is guaranteed to be one of a kind – as is the head wearing the beanie.
