I don’t know about you, but this is what we want to be wearing since these colder temps have started to hit! Misha + Puff, a children’s knitwear brand, really got it right. They bring us back to our handmade family knit gifts. Those pieces that can’t be replaced, are worthy of a thousand compliments and can be handed down through the generations. Their pieces each have a vintage-y feel, but their choice of colors and patterns are updated and can be styled in a classic and modern way. Plus, nothing beats their warmth, especially in this frigid weather.
This is our favorite part – each piece is designed in the US by Anna Wallack. They are then hand made in Peru where the women who knit them are given opportunities to support their families through working from home or at a knitting center that provides meals and childcare. And when you receive your item you will find the name of each knitter on the hang tag. Personalization to make your heirloom piece that much more special…bravo!
Misha + Puff’s winter collection was inspired by the New England seaside and landscape. Near and dear to Bitsy’s heart, of course, especially as we head into the Holiday season in New England. This collection is constructed with soft merino wool or alpaca. The Peruvian detailing is exceptional – pom poms, popcorn and zig zag designs that are timeless. Honestly, when we went to pick our favorite pieces to feature in this post we could not decide…so we went with a generous sampling. But to get your hands on your own picks and see even more of this special collection, head to
