Cathy Burgess founded BURGESS Sweaters in 2017, inspired by her endless affinity for luxury fashion and her love for Newport; a beautiful seaside city in Rhode Island,
famous for its mansions, shopping, and scenic landscape.
Since 2017, every BURGESS Sweater has been spun with hints of Newport's cool summer sunsets, spring afternoon walks to the harbor, ocean views, and cozy winter nights by the fireplace.
Our yarns are part of the BCI, Better Cotton Initiative, improving cotton production for producers and the environment.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality yarns that are beautifully made and produced responsibly. BURGESS is concerned with both the quality of our yarns and our impact on our society as a whole.
We believe that responsibly produced fibers and quality yarns result in luxurious products.
