GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LESLIE BRUSHED WOOL SWEATER IN PEARL

Perfect for all seasons, our lightweight yet warm Leslie sweater offers a modern relaxed silhouette complete with a classic crew neckline and contemporary cropped hem.

 

THE YARN 
The super-soft wool Genevieve has selected for the Leslie 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 spun, it is then brushed using the teasel thistle – a rarely used specialist technique that further enhances the sumptuously soft handle.

 

THE DETAILS 
Genevieve creates the Leslie’s heavenly pearl hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange of soft pink, blue, yellow and grey yarns. The result is a subtly striking and highly unusual iridescent effect that she fondly calls ‘faded rainbow’.

 

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.

 

STYLE ADVISE 
With its boxy silhouette, the Leslie is perfect for teaming with high-waisted pieces but also lightweight enough to layer underneath dungarees. Let it elevate your everyday denim and sneakers, or opt for a stylish colour-clash by pairing with vibrant printed skirt
