GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN JADE GREEN
A wardrobe saviour, our effortlessly stylish Leven cardigan is crafted to a slim, sartorial-inspired silhouette finished with a deep V-shaped neckline and refined details including ribbed trims and saddle shoulders.
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. This particular style is presented in a dramatic jade green hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange. Capturing a natural richness, it blends jade green, turquoise and emerald with hints of ochre and brick red.
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 dark moss green by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
Not only is the Alva spun on British soil from British yarn, it’s crafted in a way that minimises waste from start to finish. 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.
Once knitted, the Leven is brushed using the teasel thistle – a time-honoured and completely natural technique for softening yarn. By elongating the fibres, it not only creates a sumptuous hand-feel, but lends the wool a relaxed, felted quality that man-made tools simply cannot match. Lastly, the fully-fashioned, seamless design promises a perfect fit with barely any yarn waste.
Let the Leven cardigan prove the cornerstone of your working-from-home wardrobe. Its lightweight yet ultra-cosy handle will add instant luxury to casual staples – try layering it over a woollen sweater for a rich, textural look. Thanks to Genevieve’s signature beautiful hues and a stylish fit that promises effortlessly cool, unisex appeal.
