Meet the Elsi | The Elegant Turtleneck Staple

Looking for that effortless, timeless staple for your capsule wardrobe?
Look no further than the Elsi Turtleneck Sweater, a piece that will work hard from Autumn to Spring. With its elegant take on the fine funnel neck silhouette and modern twist on the contrast tipping on cuffs and hem, the Elsi sweater offers a playful accent to your wardrobe while also being sustainably made.

The Elsi turtleneck sweater is a versatile piece that can be styled in many different ways to suit your personal style. Whether you’re going for a casual or a more formal look, the Elsi sweater can be dressed up or down with ease. I love how Hannah, stylist from Graham St has styled this elegant piece.

“Genevieve Sweeney knitwear is designed and produced in the UK. It is another brand that is committed to doing things differently, keeping slow fashion as the driving force behind the business and design choices. The jumper that I am wearing here is astonishingly soft. It has a turtle neck and a turquoise band at the cuffs and on the hem. It is little details like these which stand Genevieve’s designs out from the crowd, as well as her excellent sustainability credentials.”



A nonchalant Spring vibe, perfect for work or weekend stroll meetings friends for coffee, paired with relaxed tailoring. Keeping the colour palette tonal for an elegant, timeless feel.

I love to style the Elsi for the evening sophisticated look, tuck into a high-waisted leather skirt or trousers and add some statement earrings. This look is perfect for a dinner date or a night out on the town.

No matter how you choose to style it, the Elsi turtleneck sweater is sure to become a staple in your capsule wardrobe. With its sustainable credentials and elegant design, this sweater is the perfect combination of style and substance.

Made with Scottish spun super-fine lambswool, this sweater offers an incredibly soft handle and irresistible comfort. But it’s not just the feel of the sweater that makes it special; it’s also the yarn’s sustainability credentials. With RWS (Responsible Wool Standards) certification, both the sheep that produce it and the land on which they graze are actively protected. The yarn mill only sources from farms that can demonstrate respectful animal welfare, so every sheep leads a healthy life with essential freedoms.

But the Elsi Turtleneck Sweater isn’t just sustainable – it’s also stylish and versatile. Everyone needs a fine funnel neck sweater in their capsule wardrobe; it’s one of those effortlessly stylish silhouettes that can be thrown on to instantly elevate any look.

The Elsi charcoal is a perfect choice – layer it under cream denim and dungarees, pair it under a knitted vest when the temperature drops, or wear it French-tucked into sleek tailored trousers for that perfect nonchalant vibe. And with its versatile style, the Elsi is sure to become a staple in your winter wardrobe.
