Shade: Trellick – semi-solid light mid neutral grey, slightly mottled

Designed by preeminent Modernist architect Erno Goldfinger, Trellick Tower is a brutalist housing block in west London. Since its completion in 1972 it has been a one of the city’s most derided buildings, while simultaneously being a cherished landmark, with many residents admiring its fortress-like quality. 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.
