Tapio Shorts, woolen race pants

We are honored to continue the Finnish saga of granny-made global woolen race pants: Tapio Shorts will keep you warm, wherever you sail or ski around the globe! 

Inspiration for these woolen pants came from the true story of Tapio Lehtinen sailing around the world twice in a pair of woolen pants knitted by his grandma Tyyne. Myssy Grannies knitted 12 pairs of custom-made woolen race pants for captain Lehtinen and the Galiana sailing crew to keep them warm on the cold seas of ongoing Ocean Globe Race. Feedback has been very positive, pants have served the crew well and kept them warm in 8°C degree storms. Can testing woolen pants get any harder than that?

The Myssy wool pants are made of natural Finnsheep wool that has 5% of lanoline left in the yarn, making it both soft and naturally water-repellent. Tapio Shorts are a super technical accessory for any sailor or serious sportsman. The design takes after original board shorts, so they can also be worn on a beach. However, we guarantee they fit underneath water-proof technical layers in any sport.

High quality garments and accessories are hand-knit by local retired ladies known as The Myssy Grannies. These cheerful ladies are the essence of our brand, knitting their own positive energy and wisdom into every stitch, even hand signing each Myssy piece they finish.

THIS IS HOW YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE: Hand-knitted woolen pants stretch to fit you perfectly and the sizes are flexible. Choosing the right size you need to know what kind of use are ment for: If you use Tapio shorts as shorts the size should be rather larger than smaller, so they will not fit too tight on the front to make you feel awkward. If the shorts will be used as a middle layer, choose a smaller size as the knitting will stretch and fit well under technical layers. The is a stretching rubber band on the waist line that can be adjusted.
