GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LESLIE BRUSHED WOOL SWEATER IN COFFEE
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 in coffee brown. A deep blend of coffee with hints of walnut and cinnamon.
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.

Such a great idea to receive a pair of socks from Genevieve Sweeney every month and every pair I’ve received has been a different design but the same excellent quality and wonderful colour combinations. They have elevated my sock collection to a whole new level. I’m so happy to support this small UK brand and the service is so personal too. I’m hooked.
The items available are beautiful. This store seems to be full of high quality and ethical products, I love shopping for sustainable and conscious brands. I treated my husband to a pair of fingerless gloves, and the quality is second to none. I'm heading back to the website to treat myself to something!
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.
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!
A fabulous range of products from a talented designer & excellent customer service. I've purchased socks, cardigan & funnel neck sweater & I'm really pleased with all my purchases. Easy to style and super comfortable. Proud to be supporting British manufacturing.
Such beautiful products, so well made! I have a jumper from the collection and I subscribe to the monthly sock delivery, they are all so gorgeous and it’s such a lovely treat every month!!
