GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN PUTTY
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 versatile putty melange, expertly balanced with pale neutral tones of chalk, taupe and soft grey.
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 light grey by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
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 Corozo buttons are a completely natural and biodegradable product derived from the Tagua Palm – an amazing tree that grows in the central American rainforest and produces nuts without any need for human harvesting.
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. It may find its way into your wife or girlfriend’s wardrobe too, thanks to Genevieve’s signature beautiful hues and a stylish fit that promises effortlessly cool, unisex appeal.

I have two pieces of beautiful knitwear from Genevieve Sweeney now and couldn’t be happier. The quality is excellent and such unusual and interesting yarns and colour ways. Love it!
I ordered the Alloa Cardigan Lambswool Magenta this time and it arrived just a few days after order. I already own two other items from Genevieve and feel really special every time I wear them. This cardigan is no different - the colour is so rich and the texture soft and velvety. Definitely worth treating yourself.
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.
I took out a sock subscription for my Dad as a Christmas gift - he has been thoroughly delighted with his new socks each month. Great quality, beautiful designs and they wash really well. Highly recommend.
The most ridiculously cosy jumper I've ever owned. I haven't taken it off since I bought it!
Bought several pairs of incredibly lovely socks from Genevieve, some for me and some for gifts, and have been more than happy with them. Great colours and fabulous quality. Would not hesitate to recommend them, all beautifully presented. Will definitely buy more products from her in the future.
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!
