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 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.
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’.
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.
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

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!
