Description

GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN DENIM BLUE

A wardrobe saviour, our effortlessly stylish Leven cardigan is crafted to a slim sartorial silhouette finished with a deep V-shaped neckline and refined details: ribbed trims and saddle shoulders.

THE YARN
Genevieve creates the Leven’s timeless hue through a carefully-balanced and deep melange of denim blue. A sartorial hue with hints of navy and charcoal.

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

 THE DETAILS
Here at GS, we see buttons as an integral part of any cardigan. Ours are made from sustainable Corozo and custom-dyed to a complementary navy blue by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
The buttons are made from Corozo – a completely natural and biodegradable product derived from the nuts of the Tagua Palm. This amazing tree grows in the rainforests of central America and produces the nuts without any need for human harvesting. Indeed, it’s such a valuable crop that the forests where it grows are being actively preserved.

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 cardigan’s fully-fashioned design not only ensures a perfect fit, but barely any yarn waste.

STYLE ADVISE
May the Leven cardigan prove cornerstone of your working from home wardrobe – capable of being worn with anything, throughout the seasons. Its ultra cosy handle is a luxury sumptuous layer to your relaxed casual style.

Intended to offer a neat, straight silhouette, take a size up for a more relaxed and oversized fit.
