GENEVIEVE SWEENEY MERINO WOOL WALKING SOCK IN LILAC
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 merino wool blend. 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 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 bright lilac and burgundy with a grey melange. These beautiful marls are then twinned with coordinating bright lilac cuffs and 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 hiking boots.
