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.
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.
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.

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.
It’s obvious love has gone into every stitch. And sustainability is taken seriously..
Really beautifully designed and crafted products with excellent service.
An independent business most definitely worth supporting :)
Fabulous British made socks. Great quality, very reasonable price, quick delivery.
One of the best online purchases over the past few years and would recommend Genevieve Sweeney if you want high quality, interesting designs at an extremely good price.
The most ridiculously cosy jumper I've ever owned. I haven't taken it off since I bought it!
What a treasure to have something hand made in the U.K. A beautiful product that my husband loved and I’m sure will last a lifetime!
