Genevieve Sweeney Alloa Super Fine Lambswool Cropped Cardigan

The most versatile piece in your wardrobe, our effortlessly stylish Alloa cardigan is crafted to a modern cropped silhouette finished with a deep V-shaped neckline and refined saddle shoulder detail. Knitted in the most unique colourway, with the given name of lichen with its unexpected twist of lime.

THE YARN
Genevieve’s hand-picked blend of soft grey and fresh pink combined with a vibrant lime captures a completely unique and beautifully eye-catching colour twist. Custom-spun in Scotland from super-fine lambswool, the Alloa offers an incredibly soft handle and irresistible comfort. Each piece is fully fashioned to ensure a high quality finish with virtually no waste. Finally, it is washed in pure Scottish waters to enhance its luxurious look and feel.

This lambswool yarn has RWS (Responsible Wool Standards) certification, meaning that both the sheep that produce it and the land on which they graze is actively protected. Our yarn mill only sources from farms that can demonstrate respectful animal welfare, so every sheep leads a healthy life with essential freedoms.
Read our journal post to find out more about our commitment to using responsible yarns.


THE DETAILS

Here at GS, we see buttons as an integral part of any cardigan. Ours are made from sustainable Codelite and custom-dyed to a lustrous deep lilac by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.

 

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 
Not only is the Alloa spun on British soil from British yarn, it’s crafted in a way that minimises waste from start to finish. The buttons are made from Codelite – a completely natural and biodegradable product created by curing and hardening the naturally-occurring proteins found in milk. Codelite first became a staple of button manufacturing in the early twentieth century, and by reviving it Courtney & Co. commit to reducing the amount of plastic within the industry.

 

STYLE ADVISE
May the Alloa cardigan prove cornerstone of your wardrobe – capable of being worn with anything, throughout the seasons. Let its striking hues liven up a classic white T-shirt; wear it buttoned up and tucked into high-waisted tailoring; or casually shrug it over a floaty dress.
Intended to offer a neat, cropped silhouette, take a size up for a more relaxed and oversized fit.

I love my GS sweater: the wool has the perfect softness, the cut is great with everything, the colour is stunning.
I have been wearing it since I got it.
