GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEYDEN INTARSIA LAMBSWOOL SWEATER IN PINK 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 YARN 

The Leyden showcases a unique yarn blend that’s spun by Genevieve herself. Here, a stylish twist of turquoise and deep, rusty red is twinned with a contrasting vibrant pink and putty 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, it also possesses a lightweight quality that’s equally suited to keeping cool during 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 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.

STYLE ADVISE 
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.

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.

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.

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.
