Misha & Puff handknit garments have gorgeous stitched up

Hot days may tell a different story, but the calendar doesn’t lie – autumn is here and cool weather around the corner. In fact, it’s just the sort of weather perfect for rugging up in the hand knit creations of Misha & Puff.

Misha & Puff is a designer of gorgeous knitwear with a decidedly retro feel for babies and kids. Garments are hand knit in 100 per cent pima cotton or the softest merino wool, and coloured with plant-based dyes. As an American company, Misha & Puff’s latest collection is for spring/summer, but the light weight knits are ideal for our mild, changeable autumn.

The Summer Popcorn Sweater (US$128) in rose or grey is darling worn with a tutu, leggings (US$72) or jeans and layered under a woolly duffel coat.

The striped grey and cream hooded Plum Island Beach Jacket (US$148) is enough cover for a warm Aussie autumn day, unless you live in Melbourne where many more layers might be required to protect against the bitingly cold days.

Misha and Puf bloomers

There are bloomers in stripes, a textured chevron pattern and then there’s the delightfully puffy Barnacle Bloomers (US$72) with ribbed leg openings and waist band. Any pair would be sweet and cosy under a winter dress worn with little knee socks.

While the designs and yarn are special, the story of Misha & Puff is what captured our hearts. The pieces are hand knit by a collective of women in Lima, Peru. They work from home or in Misha & Puff’s knitting centre, a workplace that provides childcare and meals. The knitter’s name is sewn into the pieces she creates, just like an artist signs her work. It’s refreshing to find such a progressive company supporting its female workforce.
