GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN SMOULDER GREY
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 smouldering charcoal melange; a complex and completely unique blend which skilfully balances tonal greys with warming amber red and steel blue accents.
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 charcoal 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.
Based on a menswear silhouette, intended to offer a neat, straight silhouette, take a size up for a more relaxed and oversized fit.
Please note that the Leven women cardigan is the same as the Leven men’s cardigan.

Such a great idea to receive a pair of socks from Genevieve Sweeney every month and every pair I’ve received has been a different design but the same excellent quality and wonderful colour combinations. They have elevated my sock collection to a whole new level. I’m so happy to support this small UK brand and the service is so personal too. I’m hooked.
The items available are beautiful. This store seems to be full of high quality and ethical products, I love shopping for sustainable and conscious brands. I treated my husband to a pair of fingerless gloves, and the quality is second to none. I'm heading back to the website to treat myself to something!
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.
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!
A fabulous range of products from a talented designer & excellent customer service. I've purchased socks, cardigan & funnel neck sweater & I'm really pleased with all my purchases. Easy to style and super comfortable. Proud to be supporting British manufacturing.
Such beautiful products, so well made! I have a jumper from the collection and I subscribe to the monthly sock delivery, they are all so gorgeous and it’s such a lovely treat every month!!
