GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LESLIE BRUSHED WOOL SWEATER IN JADE GREEN
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 jade green. A complex blend of jade green, turquoise and emerald with hints of khaki and turquoise.
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 it with corduroy or leather skirt.

I love my GS sweater: the wool has the perfect softness, the cut is great with everything, the colour is stunning.
I have been wearing it since I got it.
It’s obvious love has gone into every stitch. And sustainability is taken seriously..
Really beautifully designed and crafted products with excellent service.
An independent business most definitely worth supporting :)
Fabulous British made socks. Great quality, very reasonable price, quick delivery.
One of the best online purchases over the past few years and would recommend Genevieve Sweeney if you want high quality, interesting designs at an extremely good price.
The most ridiculously cosy jumper I've ever owned. I haven't taken it off since I bought it!
What a treasure to have something hand made in the U.K. A beautiful product that my husband loved and I’m sure will last a lifetime!
