GENEVIEVE SWEENEY SEVERN MERINO BLEND SOCKS IN BURGUNY

A winter saviour, our Severn sock is where heritage British manufacturing and contemporary design
meet. Crafted by twisting together discontinued and end-of-line yarns using a traditional intarsia technique, the result is both striking and modern: a stylish fusion of colour twinned with eye-catching block stripes.

THE YARN 
Made from a soft, sustainable and durable merino wool blend, these socks are custom-spun by Genevieve herself to create a selection of totally unique colour blends; in this case an arresting mid- blue marl accented with rich burgundy red. A bright turquoise burst completes the look.

THE DETAILS 
Not only does the Severn provide exceptional comfort with its soft yarn and seamless construction, but the complexity of its contrast-colour design should not be overlooked. Creating this pattern is a highly complicated technique that not only challenges traditional intarsia machines, but – in true reflection of Genevieve’s slow fashion values – also takes a long time.

SUSTAINABILITY CREDENTIALS 
To create the Severn sock, Genevieve approached a family-run, Derbyshire-based mill, 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.

STYLE ADVICE 
The Severn 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.

I have two pieces of beautiful knitwear from Genevieve Sweeney now and couldn’t be happier. The quality is excellent and such unusual and interesting yarns and colour ways. Love it!

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.
