Muffie is a cosy indoor accessory that warms your hands and helps you feel comfy and relaxed. You can use it curled up on the sofa, sitting up in bed, on a long journey, sitting out in the garden, as a pillow, a cosy neck support, to prop up your feet, as well as sliding your hands in for a comfort boost – whatever works for you.
Absolutely. The idea for Muffie came about because Teresa, its creator, was looking for an indoor hand muff to keep her poorly father’s hands warm, but couldn’t find it. So, if you suffer from a condition like Raynaud’s Syndrome, arthritis, or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Muffie can help warm up and relax hands and fingers, soothing aches and pains. It’s also gentle on sensitive skin.
Gloves are great outdoors, but you wouldn’t choose to wear them at home. However that’s what many people with persistently cold hands end up doing. Muffie is a practical alternative to gloves, as you can easily slip a hand in and out to pick up a drink, change channels or send a text.
The softness and warmth Muffie provides makes you feel good. We’ve used super-soft fabrics, so when you put your hands inside, you get an instant sense of comfort and well-being. Some people even use Muffie during meditation or mindfulness sessions, and it can also help if you’re trying to kick your digital habit and want to spend less time on your phone.
Muffie is for anyone who likes to snuggle up and get comfy. Feeling cosy, relaxed and contented is what the Danes (one the happiest people on the planet) call “hygge” (pronounced “hue guh”). It’s particularly helpful if you suffer from conditions like arthritis of the fingers, hands and wrists, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or have persistently cold hands as a consequence of poor circulation or low blood pressure.
You don’t have to use Muffie indoors. You can use it to keep your hands warm sitting in the garden, on a car journey, waiting at the airport, or watching your children play football on a frosty Saturday morning! It also makes a great camping pillow,
You don’t have to use Muffie indoors. You can use it to keep your hands warm sitting in the garden, on a car journey, waiting at the airport, or watching your children play football on a frosty Saturday morning! It also makes a great camping pillow, back-packing pillow or festival pillow.
You can use Muffie in whatever way works for you, not just to warm your hands. You can cuddle it, use it to support your head, neck or back, as a pillow, to prop up your feet, just like you would a cushion. You could even have several Muffies around the house so there’s always one to grab when you need it.
Muffie is made from ultra-soft fabrics that are often used for baby’s clothes, so you know they’ll feel gentle next to your skin. We’ve also used a special ’bounce back’ filling called Comforel® on the inside, to help Muffie keep its shape even after washing.
So your hands don’t touch. Skin to skin contact can lead to clammy hands, and that’s not very nice. And if you’ve got cold hands, they’ll warm up faster because they aren’t in contact with each other.
Yes, it’s beautiful and practical. Just unzip it, take out the insert and wash both parts separately, following the instructions on the care labels you’ll find inside.
The designs are printed by one of UK’s leading fabric printers using the highest quality digital inks, so the colours and details should last. However, as with any fabric, repeated washing (or incorrect treatment) will have an impact on long-term appearance.
Muffie is such a fun, typically British product that we knew we couldn’t make it anywhere else but here in the UK. We also want to play our small part in supporting UK manufacturers, meaning that every Muffie has a point and purpose beyond simply being a lovely, practical accessory by helping to sustain jobs and traditional industries in the UK.
Muffie is only sold online through our website and on Etsy.
