There has been much concern recently about the fate of bees. Now bees are amazing little creatures who apparently, we will struggle to live life as we know it without them. The humming of the buzz as they happily go about their business is one every summer garden should hear- it means summer is finally here.

This shawl has been designed with the life style of bees in mind- from the pollen they collect, the yellow colour they seem to love on my washing line and the honeycomb structure of their hives, this shawl is a celebration of the life of the bee.

This shawl features a beaded cast off for that extra sparkle in the sun- 171 size 6 beads and a small beading hook are required.
