Honey bees are the highest form of insect life and are the only insect that produce food eaten by people—honey! They live in colonies consisting of a queen, male drones, and the female worker bees that make the honey. Their honey has many uses and is the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life.

This cute bee-inspired hat was designed in honour of Meadow Vista Honey Wines, an artisan farm winery located in the Okanagan Valley that produces award winning mead. It is knit bottom up and includes sizing for the whole family.
