GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN HEATHER ROSE

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 YARN
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 dreamy heather pink hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange. Capturing a romantic spring mood, it blends hints of soft pink and lilac with beautiful amethyst purple.

 THE DETAILS
Here at GS, we see buttons as an integral part of any cardigan. Ours are made from sustainable Codelite and custom-dyed to a lustrous pink by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 
Not only is the Leven 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 Codelite – a completely natural and biodegradable product created by curing and hardening the naturally-occurring proteins found in milk. Codelite first became a staple of button manufacturing in the early twentieth century, and by reviving it Courtney & Co. commit to reducing the amount of plastic within the industry.

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.

STYLE ADVISE
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.

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