Genevieve Sweeney Brushed Supersoft Wool Cardigan in Smoulder Grey
A modern classic, our Lenzie cardigan features a sumptuous brushed finish with a contemporary slightly cropped silhouette, while the fully-fashioned, seamless design guarantees a perfect fit.
The super-soft wool Genevieve has selected for the Lenize 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 Lenize’s dark tonal hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange of dark grey with hints of steel blue, burning amber and light grey yarns.
Here at GS, we see buttons as an integral part of any cardigan. Ours are made from sustainable Codelite and custom-dyed to a deep grey by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
The buttons are made from Codelite – a completely natural and biodegradable product created by curing and hardening the naturally occurring proteins found in milk. Codelite first became a staple of button manufacturing in the early twentieth century, and by reviving it Courtney & Co. commit to reducing the amount of plastic within the industry.
The Lenize is crafted by a family-run Scottish mill that places craftsmanship, technology and sustainability at the heart of its core values. Genevieve works with this mill not only because it strives for the highest quality manufacturing standards, but does so in the most environmentally responsible ways. A world leader in the production of carded yarns, by using only 100% renewable energy it reduces its CO2 emissions to zero. Additionally, the sweater’s fully-fashioned design ensures as little yarn waste as possible.
With its uplifting hue and boxy silhouette, the Lenize is a versatile cardigan you’ll reach for time and time again. Complement its luxe yet felted handle by pairing it with sharply tailored trousers, or let it add textural contrast to a black leather skirt.

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!
