Perfect for updating everyday wardrobes with unique dramatic marl stripes, our Salpaka stripe sock is where heritage British manufacturing and contemporary design meet. Crafted by twisting together discontinued and end-of-line yarns, the result is a stylish blend of eye-catching, innovative and unique colour combinations.

Made from a soft, sustainable and durable merino wool blend and alpaca, these socks are custom-spun by Genevieve herself to create a selection of unique colour blends; in this case, a bright blue merino wool with natural alpaca with purple stripes.

Each sock is finished with Genevieve’s hallmark care and attention: note the seamless toes which ensure lasting comfort throughout the day.

To create the Samar sock, Genevieve approached a family-run mill based in Derbyshire. After spotting the unusable end-of-line yarns, decided to rescue them from simply 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 unique blends out of otherwise wasted products. Twisting the yarns together can take hours and is something most factories wouldn’t have time for. Still, for Genevieve, it’s all about embracing the joy of slow manufacturing – and in doing so, creating something truly original and beautiful.

The Salpaka Stripe Sock ticks all the boxes: sharp, stylish and seriously comfortable. Let its striking mix of colours bring an uplifting finish to anything from traditional tailoring to casual jeans or joggers. This is the perfect sock that keeps you toasty as a bed or lounge sock but also durable to wear with your winter boots and keep your feet comfortable and warm.

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.
