R.A.M Knitwear

R.A.M is a fun and fresh custom knitwear design company, creating unique fashion and promoting the versatility of knitting craftsmanship using Shima Seiki design systems and industrial knitting machines.

“Our products are eco sustainable - our ethos is to utilise end of season/production cones of yarn (unloved yarn) which gives a unique product as there may only be enough for 2 or 3 pieces during manufacturing. Luxury yarns we love to use are Merino/Silk/Lambswool/Shetland wool. Our mini factory is based within the Bressay School and we have a shop in Lerwick's Commercial Street” – Roisin McAtamney of R.A.M Knitwear.

A limited selection of styles can be viewed online at, and a full selection is available in R.A.M Knitwear’s Lerwick shop.
