GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LAIDE BRUSHED WOOL KNITTED VEST SWEATER IN SKY BLUE

Lightweight yet irresistibly cosy, our Laide knitted sleeveless vest is designed for all seasons. It offers a modern relaxed silhouette complete with a classic crew neckline and ribbed trims, traditionally linked for a luxury finish.

THE YARN 
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 is then brushed using the teasel thistle – a rarely used specialist technique that further enhances the sumptuously soft handle.

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 
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 hand-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.

THE DETAILS
Genevieve creates the Laide’s timeless hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange of sky blue. An extraordinary hue that evokes an ethereal sky with hints of mint green, lilac, indigo blue and pale yellow. A master piece showcasing the beauty of Scottish spun spinning.

STYLE ADVISE 
Let the Laide instantly lift your spring wardrobe, layered over the GS white tshirt in the spring months whilst working from home or layer over a crisp striped blouse, then contrast over a leather shirt in the autumn for a modern textured look.
Based on a menswear silhouette for a relaxed boyfriend fit.
