GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEYDEN INTARSIA LAMBSWOOL SWEATER IN BLUE MARL

Showcasing Genevieve’s hallmark blend of contemporary design and artisan skill, the Leyden Intarsia sweater offers a modern edge to a traditional intarsia technique. Presented in a contemporary geometric style, it draws inspiration from Genevieve’s sketches of 1930’s textiles.

THE YARN 

The Leyden showcases a unique yarn combination that’s custom-spun by Genevieve herself. In this case, a stylish twist of vivid blue and navy with a contrasting hazelnut and charcoal that evokes a timeless mood.

Thanks to the magic of its gorgeous lambswool yarn, this highly versatile sweater will help to regulate body temperature, whatever the weather. Not only does it promise essential warmth against the cold, it also possesses a lightweight quality that’s equally suited to keeping cool during the summer months.

This lambswool yarn has RWS (Responsible Wool Standards) certification, meaning that both the sheep that produce it and the land on which they graze is actively protected. Our yarn mill only sources from farms that can demonstrate respectful animal welfare, so every sheep leads a healthy life with essential freedoms.

DETAIL
GS: “The geometric intarsia is created by knitting blocks of colours with separate strands of yarn by following a chart – almost like paint by numbers. Each square of the chart represents a stitch, and by then twisting the neighbouring colours together you create a seamless effect with no loops on the back. Personally, I love the sharp geometric lines you can achieve with this beautiful technique.”

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS
The Leyden is crafted by a highly skilled team of Scottish knitters based at a mill on the banks of Loch Leven, and for good reason: the purity of the water helps to open up the yarn fibres – a completely natural process that results not just in a wonderfully consistent colour, but also a sumptuously soft handle that defines GS pieces. Fibres are also dyed before being spun – a gentler process that enhances quality while making the most of the yarn’s natural beauty.

STYLE ADVISE 
The ultimate statement sweater; it’s one of those effortlessly stylish silhouettes that can be thrown on to instantly elevate any look. Pair it with tailored trousers, or tucked into a leather skirt for a modern edge.
