Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm looking for a Finnish lullaby or poem that tells the tale of a mother that wants to knit her child mittens, so she offers a ewe bread in exchange for her wool. Thank you.

It’s ”Mää, mää, lammas kulta” by Suonio (a pseudonym of Julius Krohn, 1835–1888). You can find the Finnish poem at http://aili-mummonarkea.blogspot.fi/2013/07/puhoksen-perinnepaivat.html or in “Tunteellinen siili ja muita suomalaisia eläinrunoja” (WSOY, 1997).
