I’m so excited to be starting a new series on the blog showcasing my favorite baby and mama products. These are by no means “must have” items that you can’t live without, they are just things that have been special to us or have offered us a helping hand when we needed one. In the insanely overwhelming world of baby products, it’s impossible to keep up with what you really need. So this series is about things our family has loved along the way. Some are obvious and can be found at Target or Amazon, some are from smaller more specialized companies.
I wanted the first piece to be on something that we will hold on to for a long time rather than on something temporary that has gotten us through a quick phase. Since Poppy is likely our last baby, I am highly sentimental about everything she touches and am already saving her favorite baby clothes. My absolute favorite pieces are these gorgeous hand knits by Misha and Puff.
Misha and Puff knits are incredibly soft, made from all natural, washable merino wool or alpaca wool. The rich hand dyed yarn colors vary from season to season. The nature of the knit allows you to stretch the fabric as your baby grows to ensure a long life. Each piece is knit by hand in Peru by their talented team of knitters who work to support their families. The knitters work from home or in the Misha and Puff knitting center which provides meals and daycare. The strong connection between the knitters and the company is apparent in each meticulously made item. The name of the woman who created your piece is included on the hang tag so you become part of their community as well. These heirloom quality knits are sure to last many lifetimes and I hope one day Poppy will be passing them down to her own babies. Any one of their pieces would be perfect for your squishy cuddly babe, or would make a gorgeous baby gift for friends or family.
Poppy is wearing the pinetree playsuit, the dayhike booties, and the popcorn bonnet.
