GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LUNAN BRUSHED WOOL SWEATER IN RUST
Lightweight yet irresistibly cosy, our Lunan men’s sweater is designed for all seasons. It offers a modern relaxed silhouette complete with a classic crew neckline, ribbed trims and fully-fashioned saddle shoulder detailing.
The super-soft wool Genevieve has selected for the Lunan 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. Once knitted, it is then brushed using the teasel thistle – a rarely used specialist technique that further enhances the sumptuously soft handle.
Genevieve’s keen eye for colour makes the Lunan an striking yet highly wearable piece. In this case, the intense brown melange inspired by autumn leaves is created by achieving the perfect blend of rusty brown, red and yellow yarns, with added hints of chestnut.
Completely natural and highly effective, the teasel thistle has for centuries been used to brush and soften yarn. By elongating the fibres, it not only creates a beautifully soft hand-feel, but lends the wool a relaxed and subtly felted quality that no man-made brush could match. In addition, the sweater’s fully-fashioned, seamless design not only ensures a perfect fit, but barely any yarn waste.
Let the Lunan instantly lift your winter wardrobe by bringing a striking pop of colour to darker separates; from indigo denim and charcoal grey tailoring, to dark overcoats.
