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.
Our lambswool has RWS certification (Responsible Wool Standards), protecting the sheep that supply the wool and the land on which they graze.
The yarn mill follows a responsible standard when sourcing raw materials that ensures the wool comes from farms that have a progressive approach to managing their land and practice holistic respect for animal welfare of the sheep.
Guaranteeing each sheep a healthy life with their essential freedoms, which include the freedom to express their normal behaviour, freedom from hunger, thirst, and the freedom from pain or discomfort, fear and distress.
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.
Inspired by menswear silhouettes, the Alva cardigan was designed using a men’s size guide but button positioning on the womens size.
