Victorian inspiration can be noted in certain pieces with the introduction of ruffled necklines, and a vintage aesthetic is apparent throughout the different patterns; garter stitching and double knit jacquard. New styles such as the Capelet and the Fiora Vest both featuring hand-made horn buttons invites us to explore winter layering in a unique and alternative way and the new hand-loomed intarsia styles feature a mix of all FW17 colors in a warm puzzle-like fashion, creating its very own Misha and Puff landscape pattern. The signature popcorn collection has new addition and certain styles are now available up to 8T.
All pieces are made from 100% Merino Wool or 100% Peruvian Pima Cotton and hand-dyed with natural and low-impact dyes. All fibers are produced in South America and are all natural. Each knitter takes great pride in the items she creates and you will find her name on the garment’s hang tag. When you purchase items from Misha and Puff you are contributing to this collaboration.
