Maddis Lambswool Cashmere Cardigan Black
The perfect cardigan for layering over evening wear or for simply dressing up your jeans, Maddis is a boxy, slightly cropped knit with a flattering cut. Crafted from a blend of sumptuously soft cashmere and lambswool with British-made Corozo buttons, this cardigan has a luxurious feel. The vibrant yellow flecks in the wool transform a classic black cardigan into a statement piece.
Made in the UK. I visit my factories regularly to get to know the artisans, ensuring good working conditions and social responsibilities at all times.

Genevieve Sweeney Maddis Lambswool & Cashmere Cardigan in Black
A modern classic, our Maddis cardigan features a contemporary, slightly cropped shape, while the fully-fashioned, seamless design guarantees a perfect fit.
For the Maddis, Genevieve blends Italian lambswool and cashmere yarns for a sumptuous hand-feel that’s lightweight enough to be worn all-year-round. Presented in a stunning black blend, it’s accented with a confetti-inspired scattering of vibrant yellow tweeds.
Both our lambswool and cashmere are certified for their sustainable provenances. RWS (Responsible Wool Standards) lambswool means that not only the sheep that produce it, but the land on which they graze, is actively protected. Likewise, SFA (Sustainable Fibre Alliance) certified cashmere ensures high animal welfare standards, reduced environmental impact and a more secure livelihood for herders.

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 dark grey by Courtney & Co. – the last button makers in the UK.
The buttons are made from Corozo – a completely natural and biodegradable product derived from the nuts of the Tagua Palm. This amazing tree grows in the rainforests of central America and produces the nuts without any need for human harvesting. Indeed, it’s such a valuable crop that the forests where it grows are being actively preserved.
The Maddis is crafted by a family-run Scottish mill that places craftsmanship, technology and sustainability at the heart of its core values. Genevieve works with this mill not only because it strives for the highest quality manufacturing standards, but does so in the most environmentally responsible ways. A world leader in the production of carded yarns, by using only 100% renewable energy it reduces its CO2 emissions to zero. Additionally, the sweater’s fully-fashioned design ensures as little yarn waste as possible.
With its uplifting hue and boxy silhouette, the Maddis is a versatile cardigan you’ll reach for time and time again. Complement its slightly cropped shape by pairing it with sharp tailored trousers, or let it add textural contrast to a black leather skirt.

I love my GS sweater: the wool has the perfect softness, the cut is great with everything, the colour is stunning.
I have been wearing it since I got it.
It’s obvious love has gone into every stitch. And sustainability is taken seriously..
Really beautifully designed and crafted products with excellent service.
An independent business most definitely worth supporting :)
Fabulous British made socks. Great quality, very reasonable price, quick delivery.
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!
What a treasure to have something hand made in the U.K. A beautiful product that my husband loved and I’m sure will last a lifetime!
