GENEVIEVE SWEENEY COTTON WALKING SOCK IN INDIGO MARL

Genevieve Sweeney creates no ordinary knitwear; and these are no ordinary walking socks. A stylish blend of eye-catching and completely unique colour combinations, they’re knitted using the softest organic cotton marl. Whether you’re a fair-weather rambler, a seasoned trekker, or have simply come to embrace the daily dog walk this past year, these are the outdoor summer socks for you.

THE YARN 
Made from soft, organic cotton, these socks are custom-spun by Genevieve herself to create a selection of totally unique colour blends – in this case navy, bright purple and burgundy. These beautiful marls are then twinned with a contrasting heel, toe and cuff in a denim and navy marl technique sole.

THE DETAILS 
Designed with functionality firmly in mind, the high technical sole ensures pure comfort even when walking on a warm day with its moisture-wicking fibres to help you stay cool and dry.
The technical yarn is made from a specifically engineered polyester fibres from with an increased surface area. This special four channel fibre forms a transport system that pulls moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric. It then dries that moisture faster than any fabric and thermoregulates the body.


SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 

To create the GS walking sock, Genevieve approached a family-run mill based in Derbyshire, and after spotting the unusable end-of-line yarns, decided to rescue them from being thrown away. Many of the yarns were small batches of discontinued colours, so Genevieve let her creativity run wild, twisting them together and producing completely unique blends from the otherwise wasted products. Twisting the yarns together can take hours and is something most factories wouldn’t have time for; but for Genevieve, it’s all about embracing the joy of slow manufacturing – and in doing so creating something truly original and beautiful.

STYLE ADVICE 
These walking socks don’t just provide unrivalled coolness and comfort, they’re perfect for injecting a pop of colour into the traditionally dark tones of hiking boots.

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.
