Shade: Barbican – semi-solid mid-dark neutral grey, slightly mottled

Nestled against the City of London’s original Roman walls, the Barbican estate arose from 40 acres of WWII bomb devastation. Its foreboding scale and Brutalist exterior enclose a leafy central waterscape, while curved concrete forms and tactile surfaces envelop its inhabitants and visitors. Our collection of neutral greys is inspired by London’s modern architectural icons.

Favourite Sock is super-soft, yet hard-wearing enough to be used for socks. It has beautiful stitch definition and unparalleled 'smooshiness'. It's the perfect signature yarn to showcase our full palette of dye effects.

Not just for socks, it's perfect for any 4 ply/fingering weight wool project, especially baby clothes, gloves and lightweight sweaters, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.

Our merino is farmed in Argentina and is guaranteed mulesing-free. Farmers are supported by the mill to raise their sheep under ethical farming practices. It is spun in Peru, where the fleece is first graded by highly-skilled workers to ensure consistent quality.
