All of our garments are made from organic Finnsheep wool, produced in conjunction with our responsible partners. Similar in softness to Merino, the fiber's overlapping scales point inward making the yarn particularly soft, and in our opinion, there is no finer wool in the world!
Our yarns are spun on our home turf in Finland in the few remaining spinning mills as well as hand-dyed here at our farm. The delicate process preserves the wool’s natural grease, lanolin, which makes our products naturally water and dirt resistant.
Finnsheep is a Finnish landrace by its origin and Finland still has the most extensive genetic Finnsheep population in the world. We find it interesting that Finnsheep are closer to the original wild sheep than most sheep races of today!
Finnsheeps are known for their incredibly soft wool that is light in weight yet dense. These sheep have an exceptionally wide color spectrum: white, brown and black wool can be mixed, making seven great natural colors for our Myssys.
The sheep are sheared twice a year as is required by law and keeping with the well-being standards of the farms.

This is a true Fisherman’s beanie that Ahti himself would wear. Wool is a naturally water-repellent material and our yarns contain lanolin, the natural grease of the wool, making the Ahti beanie particularly good for wet conditions.
