Genevieve Sweeney creates no ordinary knitwear, and these are no ordinary long-walking socks. A stylish blend of eye-catching and unique colour combinations, they’re knitted using the softest merino wool blend. These are the long walking socks that your wellington boots have been calling for, worn during daily dog walks or gardening, these are the outdoor socks for you.

Made from soft – yet highly durable – machine washable merino wool, these socks are custom-spun by Genevieve herself to create a selection of totally unique colour blends – in this case a charcoal melange with gold and grey melange. These beautiful marls are then twinned with contrasting grey cuffs and bright gold GNVE SWNY logo detailing.

Merino wool is a natural fibre that’s both breathable and insulating, so will keep feet warm in winter and comfortably cool during the milder months. Due to its moisture-wicking qualities, wool is not just naturally antibacterial and odour-resistant, but helps keep feet dry too – considerably reducing the chance of blisters or skin irritation so you can concentrate on enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Designed with functionality firmly in mind, the double density sole ensures lasting comfort by adding essential cushioning to the foot while walking. Meanwhile, ribbed detailing around the ankle and foot provides extra stability and support.

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 otherwise wasted product.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.

These walking socks don’t just provide unrivalled warmth and comfort; they’re perfect for injecting a pop of colour into the traditionally dark tones of wellington boots.

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.
