Misanja was founded in 2017, inspired by a beloved craft hobby. The name of the company contains the first syllables of my own (Sanna) and of my youngest children’s names, so it immediately felt “own”. I especially like working on new ideas and feel that through my company I can execute my creativity; appropriately challenging myself.

I got the idea for a Christmas yarn calendar already in 2017 and the first Misanja Christmas calendar appeared the following Christmas. Now, in 2020, I am delighted to have more than 10 other entrepreneurs involved, and I can’t help but admire their wealth of ideas and creativity! I have experienced a great privilege to be in this project both as the receiving and as the giving party; cooperation is power!

Yarn of the day

In box 10 you will find a glittering Starry Sky miniskeins. The color scheme of the yarn was inspired by the image shown on the skeins’s card. I often get my inspiration for yarn colors from nature-themed images.

Misanja has Season yarns, their color scheme is designed according to Finland’s four seasons, although in winter they often mean Christmas colors, which are “hidden” for the most part in the boxes of the Yarn Advent Calendar.

Lentävä Lapanen

The Lentävä Lapanen knitting café is a cosy combination yarn store and café. It is like a living room for those who have found a passion for knitting, as well as being a wonder world of yarn. Lentävä Lapanen is located in downtown Järvenpää right next to the train station. The knitting café is where the joy of the handicraft and good company come together over a lovely cup of coffee. The yard store houses a small café for 15-20 people, where delicious local products are served.
Lentävä Lapanen has its own domestic yarn known as Lempi, which is made from the wool of the Kainuun Harmas sheep. The wool is then dyed by hand. The wool is best suited to stockings.
We also arrange courses in knitting and weaving on request. For more information, contact us at: info@lentavalapanen.fi
