GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LAIDE BRUSHED WOOL KNITTED VEST IN SKY BLUE

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 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’s then brushed using the teasel thistle – a rarely-used specialist technique that further enhances the sumptuously soft hand-feel.

THE DETAILS
Genevieve creates the Laide’s dreamy sky blue hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange. Capturing an ethereal mood, it blends mint green, pale blue and lilac with hints of soft spring-like yellow.

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 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.

STYLE ADVISE 
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.
