  • positive review  I searched and searched Facebook for a good quality blanket, after looking at the products that had been made I was sold they were amazing. I put in an order for the colour blanket I wanted and what size, I thought I would have to wait weeks and weeks when I got told how long it would be I was amazed how quickly it would be done, today I received my little boys blanket and I couldn’t be more happier with it, the blanket really is good quality and absolutely beautiful not something you can buy from a shop. You are a very talented lady I’m really pleased with my purchase and I will most likely order a bigger one for myself, Thankyou so much xxxx

    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  Finally found the place everyone was getting these beautiful blankets from and I’m so glad I did. The most amazing service and my blanket arrived so fast from ordering. Ordered early thinking it would take a while to be made... I was so wrong. The quality of the blanket is fab it’s so soft. Already put it in my case for the hospital I can’t wait for my little girl to use it. I got size large in rainbow, after my friends seeing mine they’re all wanting one and I recommend them to anyone else. Couldn’t be happier, Thank you so much Xx

  • positive review  These blankets are absolutely lovely. I bought 2. One for myself and one for my mum for us both use with my new daughter. They are perfect for using with the car seat in these cold winter months. They’re so soft and they keep my little one nice and warm whilst we’re out and about. Communication was quick and the turnaround in receiving the blankets was fast. There are so many colour choices and the added extra effort given in them being washed before being sent is very thoughtful. Im very pleased with my purchase ?

  • positive review  Bought one of these blankets before my baby arrived. Was so in love with it when it arrived and couldn’t wait to use it. The wool is so soft, the colour is beautiful (turquoise and white stripe) and it is lovely and warm for my baby girl now she’s here. Every time I’ve used it someone has complemented it and stated how nice it is, so thank you. Would definitely recommend buying one and spending that little bit more, totally worth every penny.

  • 5 star review  I'm so happy with the quality of the blanket I ordered. It's absolutely beautiful. The blanket was ready within days of placing the order and it arrived all neatly folded in ribbon and in a gift bag with tissue. This was for a present for my friend and I'm over the moon with it. The knitting Bee were so professional and I couldn't recommend them any higher...Thankyou
