GENEVIEVE SWEENEY SEVERN MERINO WOOL SOCKS IN INDIGO
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.
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 Indio marl accented with bright blue. A deep purple burst completes the look.
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.
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.
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.

Such a great idea to receive a pair of socks from Genevieve Sweeney every month and every pair I’ve received has been a different design but the same excellent quality and wonderful colour combinations. They have elevated my sock collection to a whole new level. I’m so happy to support this small UK brand and the service is so personal too. I’m hooked.
The items available are beautiful. This store seems to be full of high quality and ethical products, I love shopping for sustainable and conscious brands. I treated my husband to a pair of fingerless gloves, and the quality is second to none. I'm heading back to the website to treat myself to something!
These socks are amazingly soft, warm, well designed, and beautiful colors… will definitely be ordering more! Plus super professional service. Thank you, Genevieve for creating a superior product that definitely stands out for quality.
The quality and style of Geneviene's knitwear is outstanding. Beautiful, timeless pieces made honouring traditional methods and materials. I've splurged on a few sweaters and socks and they are now staple items in my wardrobe. Treat yourself, Geneviene's stuff is so worth it!
A fabulous range of products from a talented designer & excellent customer service. I've purchased socks, cardigan & funnel neck sweater & I'm really pleased with all my purchases. Easy to style and super comfortable. Proud to be supporting British manufacturing.
