GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN SKY BLUE
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 dreamy heather pink hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange. Capturing dreamy sky blue hue through a carefully-balanced and truly unique colour melange. Capturing an ethereal mood, it blends mint green, pale blue and lilac with hints of soft spring-like yellow
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 aqua blue 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 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.
