Genevieve Sweeney Alva Super Fine Lambswool Cardigan Drift Grey
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 driftwood, oatmeal and soft grey yarns 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 Corozo and custom-dyed to a complementary soft light grey 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 Corozo – a completely natural and biodegradable product derived from the nuts of the Tagua Palm. This amazing tree grows in the rainforests of
central America and produces the nuts without any need for human harvesting. Indeed, it’s such a valuable crop that the forests where it grows are being actively preserved.
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.

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!
