GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LESLIE BRUSHED WOOL SWEATER IN SMOULDER GREY
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 timeless hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange of smoulder charcoal. This is no ordinary charcoal, a complex blend of tonal dark greys to deep steel blue balanced with warming amber red accents.
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 textured look by pairing with corduroy or leather skirt.
