  • positive review  Just received my comforter for my new grandson today and it’s absolutely beautiful ?. Cannot recommend this company enough. I only placed order last week and they received, made, posted and delivered it all within a week. I was kept informed about the process of this journey throughout. Comforter so different from what you would buy from a shop a lovely unique gift. Thank you so much I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family ❤️.

  • positive review  I bought a blanket from the knitting bee MCR for my aunties first baby. The blanket was amazing quality, soo soft and well made and as a bonus it smelt lovely! I have already recommended the knitting bee multiple times and I can’t wait to purchase another gorgeous blanket! I think it’s amazing to help small businesses during this times especially when you get the uniqueness of a hand knitted blanket made with the colours you choose, thank you knitting bee xxx

    positive review  I ordered the rainbow pom pom blanket in the large size. I can’t believe how fast it took to be made and then delivered it literally came within 2 days of being started even though I was given the time scale of 3-5 days which I was completely happy with too. They keep you up dated of when I’m your blanket is going to be started, when it’s finished and when it’s going to be posted out. Can’t fault a single thing because the service is amazing and the blanket itself is stunning. I’ll be ordering the extra large next. Cant wait to bring my baby girl home in it thank you so much ?

  • positive review  I received my little boys gorgeous blanket the day after he was born, he was born 6 weeks early and spent some time in NICU and his knitting bee MCR blanket was the perfect coming home blanket. It’s so soft and keeps him nice and warm in the car seat or the buggy. I couldn’t recommend these lovely blankets enough
