Genevieve Sweeney Alva Lambswool Cardigan Green and Pink
A wardrobe saviour, our effortlessly stylish Alva cardigan is crafted to a slim boyfriend silhouette finished with a deep V-shaped neckline and refined details: neat pockets, ribbed trims and saddle shoulders.
Genevieve’s hand-picked blend of deep green, soft pink and off white melange make for a completely unique and beautifully eye-catching colour twist. Custom-spun in Scotland from super-fine lambswool, the Alva 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.

Here at GS, we see buttons as an integral part of any cardigan.
Ours are made from sustainable Codelite and custom-dyed to soft light pink by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
Not only is the Alva 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 Alva 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 jeans; or casually shrug it over a floaty dress.
Intended to offer a neat, straight silhouette, take a size up for a more relaxed and oversized fit.
Inspired by menswear silhouettes, the Alva cardigan was designed using a men’s size guide but button positioning on the womens size.

I am 5’4″ , size UK 8-10 top wearing a size small cardigan. I normally wear a size XS for a neater fit but enjoy a more relaxed fit with a size up- great for layering over another piece of knitwear.
