GENEVIEVE SWEENEY SAMAR ARGYLE COTTON MARL SOCKS IN BLUE
The traditional argyle has been given a modern update with our Samar Argyle sock. Celebrating a true intarsia technique, 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 completely unique colour combinations.
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 bright blue, navy and yellow on the diamond argyles. These beautiful marls are then twinned with a contrasting bright blue base.
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, and 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 completely unique blends out of 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.
Perfect for providing cosy comfort on chilly autumn days, team these Samar socks with cropped trousers and your go-to ankle boots, letting the colourful trim peek out from in-between.
