GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LAIDE BRUSHED WOOL KNITTED VEST IN SMOULDER
Meet the Laide: lightweight yet irresistibly cosy, our sleeveless sweater vest is designed for versatile, all-year-round wear. It offers a modern relaxed silhouette complete with a classic crew neckline and ribbed trims, traditionally linked for a premium finish.
The super-soft wool Genevieve has selected for the Laide is locally sourced and spun by a celebrated Aberdeenshire mill. The secret to its luxurious handle is the fact it comes from the ‘first clip’ of the lamb – an initial shear known for its unrivalled softness. Finer and more expensive, it produces a garment of exceptionally high quality without compromising on its authentic Shetland character. Once knitted, it’s then brushed using the teasel thistle – a rarely-used specialist technique that further enhances the sumptuously soft hand-feel.
Genevieve creates the Laide’s dramatic smouldering charcoal melange; a complex and completely unique blend which skilfully balances tonal greys with warming amber red and steel blue accents.
Completely natural and highly effective, the teasel thistle has for centuries been used to brush and soften yarn. By elongating the fibres, it not only creates a beautifully soft feel, but lends the wool a relaxed and subtly felted quality that no man-made brush could match. In addition, the sweater’s fully-fashioned, seamless design not only ensures a perfect fit, but barely any yarn waste.
Based on a menswear-inspired silhouette that makes it perfect for layering, let the Laide transport you effortlessly through the seasons. Style it with a patterned dress, a crisp white shirt, or keep things simple by pairing it with your favourite tee.

I have two pieces of beautiful knitwear from Genevieve Sweeney now and couldn’t be happier. The quality is excellent and such unusual and interesting yarns and colour ways. Love it!
I ordered the Alloa Cardigan Lambswool Magenta this time and it arrived just a few days after order. I already own two other items from Genevieve and feel really special every time I wear them. This cardigan is no different - the colour is so rich and the texture soft and velvety. Definitely worth treating yourself.
These socks are amazingly soft, warm, well designed, and beautiful colors… will definitely be ordering more! Plus super professional service. Thank you, Genevieve for creating a superior product that definitely stands out for quality.
I took out a sock subscription for my Dad as a Christmas gift - he has been thoroughly delighted with his new socks each month. Great quality, beautiful designs and they wash really well. Highly recommend.
The most ridiculously cosy jumper I've ever owned. I haven't taken it off since I bought it!
Bought several pairs of incredibly lovely socks from Genevieve, some for me and some for gifts, and have been more than happy with them. Great colours and fabulous quality. Would not hesitate to recommend them, all beautifully presented. Will definitely buy more products from her in the future.
The quality and style of Geneviene's knitwear is outstanding. Beautiful, timeless pieces made honouring traditional methods and materials. I've splurged on a few sweaters and socks and they are now staple items in my wardrobe. Treat yourself, Geneviene's stuff is so worth it!
