GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEYDEN INTARSIA LAMBSWOOL SWEATER IN BLUE MARL
Sitting at the point where contemporary design and artisan craftsmanship meet, our lambswool Leyden sweater offers a modern take on the traditional intarsia technique, featuring a geometric motif inspired by 1930s textile designs.
The Leyden showcases a unique yarn blend that’s spun by Genevieve herself. Here, an earthy twist of hazelnut and charcoal grey is twinned with a contrasting vivid blue and navy mix.
Thanks to the magic of natural yarn, this highly versatile sweater will help to regulate body temperature, whatever the weather. Not only does it promise essential warmth against the cold, but 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 are 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.
Read our journal post to find out more about our commitment to using responsible yarns.
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.”
The Leyden is a testament to Genevieve’s commitment to slow, mindful fashion. Firstly, the yarns are spun at an ethically-focused mill on the banks of Loch Leven; then a team of artisan knitters based in the Scottish Borders complete the complex hand intarsia detailing by hand – a process that can take many hours. Last comes the secret ingredient: each piece is washed in the naturally soft and pure Scottish waters of the River Teviot to gently open the fibres and enhance the luxurious handle too.
The ultimate statement sweater; the Leyden is one of those effortlessly stylish silhouettes that can be thrown on to instantly elevate a look. Pair it with tailored trousers, or wear it tucked into a leather skirt for a modern edge.

One of the best online purchases over the past few years and would recommend Genevieve Sweeney if you want high quality, interesting designs at an extremely good price.
The most ridiculously cosy jumper I've ever owned. I haven't taken it off since I bought it!
