Leven Cardigan - Sky Blue

£190.00

GENEVIEVE SWEENEY LEVEN BRUSHED WOOL CARDIGAN IN SKY BLUE

A wardrobe saviour, the effortlessly stylish Leven cardigan is crafted to a slim, sartorial-inspired silhouette finished with a deep V-shaped neckline and refined details including ribbed trims and saddle shoulders.

THE YARN
The super-soft wool Genevieve has selected for the Leven 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.

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 
Not only is the Leven spun on British soil from British yarn, it’s crafted in a way that minimises waste from start to finish. The Corozo buttons are a completely natural and biodegradable product derived from the Tagua Palm – an amazing tree that grows in the central American rainforest and produces nuts without any need for human harvesting.

Once knitted, the Leven is brushed using the teasel thistle – a time-honoured and completely natural technique for softening yarn. By elongating the fibres, it not only creates a sumptuous hand-feel, but lends the wool a relaxed, felted quality that man-made tools simply cannot match. Lastly, the fully-fashioned, seamless design promises a perfect fit with barely any yarn waste.

STYLE ADVISE
Let the Leven cardigan prove the cornerstone of your working-from-home wardrobe. Its lightweight yet ultra-cosy handle will add instant luxury to casual staples – try layering it over a woollen sweater for a rich, textural look. 

Intended to offer a neat, straight silhouette, take a size up for a more relaxed and oversized fit.
