Ria Burns Knitwear
About Ria Burns Knitwear
Ria Burns makes small batch, artisanal knitwear from local, traceable wool. She hand dyes her garments with homegrown and foraged native plants, handmaking each piece on a knitting machine to create a locally made, long-lasting, and unique product that works with, not against, the environment.
Ria’s knitwear is designed for longevity and made to be cherished, looked after, and passed on. She takes pride in showcasing the natural hues and qualities of British wool – a soft, warm, and durable textile.
She is committed to regenerative agriculture practices that go beyond sustainability. For Ria, it’s all about local, climate beneficial, slow fashion.
Colour Block Circle Scarf – Weld Yellow and Grey
Knitted in a bespoke Shetland-Romney lambswool yarn from Fernhill Farm in Somerset, this cosy circle scarf can be worn long or wrapped around the neck for extra warmth. The snood is knitted in an English rib stitch which accentuates the softness of the yarn.
The vibrant colour blocks of yarn have been dyed with homegrown Weld, with a section left undyed to showcase the naturally heathery shades of the grey lambswool yarn. It’s knitted by Ria on vintage hand powered knitting machines in her Bristol studio.
