How personalised can the blankets be?
What size options are available?
We have two main size options available, a small and a large. All the sizes on the price list are approx measurements due to the tightness of the wool and stitches. As blankets are newly stitched they will be a little tight and this will give with use. If you gently stretch the wool out at the edges this will help, this will also give further with use and being washed. We use the same amount of wool and number of stitches in every blanket to ensure they are all the same.
The small blanket is approx 17 inch X 18 inch and our large blanket is approx 28 inch X 26 inch, sizes may vary slightly due to wool stretching or being tight. Our small blanket is the perfect size for newborn babies and fits car seats like a glove. The large sized blanket allows the blanket to grow with the little one and is a great size for cots, beds, prams and toddlers. We also offer matching mini blankets so your little ones can cover their dolls in the same perfect blanket as their own.
What size do you recommend?
We recommend small blankets for new borns, car seats and prams, while out and about. However some people want the blanket to last a little longer as baby gets bigger, so size large is recommend, this size is great for strollers, cribs etc. We do have a size guide in our Instagram story highlights which may help.
What colour and style options are there to choose from?
The Knitting Bee also offers various different personalised stylings to their blankets. Styling includes the pattern of the knitting, which offers a striped option and a check option. Customers can pick up to 2 different wools of their colour choice to make these styles.
Other styling options include the trimmings we have available for our blankets. We currently offer a flower trim, which is available in white and pink, and also a fluff trim which is available in white, lemon, pink, purple and black. Our trims offer a finishing modern touch to our blankets and give the blankets the extra wow factor. All trims are hand stitched onto the blankets with care.
How do you wash the Knitting Bee blankets?
The Knitting Bee blankets are very easy to wash and this is the question we get asked most frequently. We ensure all blankets are washed, soft and smelling nice before shipping. To achieve this you place your blanket into a pillowcase (to prevent other items from pulling the wool) and into the washing machine with other baby items or a towel of a similar colour, to ensure no colours run onto your blanket. Other items are need to be added to the wash to ensure the blanket spins properly due to it being light weight. Place the washing machine on a light or quick 30 minutes wash. Once finished place the blanket onto a radiator to dry. If your blanket has a fluff trim we recommend to hand wash to keep your fluff trim in great condition, you can use a hair dryer to fluff your trim back up to its full glory or place in the tumble dryer on low heat for 10 minutes. So no need to worry about sticky fingers and mess on your blanket, as the Knitting Bee blankets are quick and easy to wash.
