Naturally dyed yarn, workshops
Ria Burns is a machine knit designer-maker based in Bristol, UK. With a passion for sustainable, local, textiles, Ria aims to champion British wool and natural dyes for clothing. She produces her knitwear using a bespoke woollen spun Shetland-cross lambswool yarn sourced from a single farm in Somerset (just 15 miles away from her studio!), dyeing the yarn with plants grown in her back garden or foraged for locally.
Alongside her eponymous label, Ria sells natural yarn dyeing kits and small batch hand dyed yarns. The Autumn edition of her seasonal colour yarn club is currently available to pre-order for delivery next month. She also teaches natural dyeing and machine knitting online and in the Bristol area.
