We believe in making beautiful, functional pieces to last forever. Every day, we create the world we want our children to live in. Everything counts. This is one way we contribute to that world.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 KnitHand knit means hard-wearing and long-lasting heirloom pieces - they will be cherished. We 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. Their talent is inspiring and I have to see this proces as a more of a collaboration. I include the name of each knitter on the piece she has knit.
Our YarnsOur 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. Our wool is washable – it will not felt up. We 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.
Misha and PuffMisha and Puff was founded in 2011 after my baby son spent his first New England winter keeping warm and cozy while swaddled head-to-toe in knits I had made. Drawing on over ten years experience as a stylist, as well as personal understanding of what works well for little ones, I have created a collection that is special yet unfussy, a way to share my love of the thoughtfully designed and handcrafted.
