Worsted

No.284

A rich grey

This rich mid grey conjures memories of city suits made from flat woven fabric, so was named after the Norfolk village where the yarn was originally woven. For devotees of our Easy Neutrals, Worsted is stronger in tone than its counterpart Purbeck Stone, but lighter than Mole’s Breath. It has an understated richness with no cold tones, making it the perfect background to make clean accent colours pop. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Worsted is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true grey We have used Worsted in a north east facing room,so while it catches the morning sun it gets no more for the rest of the day.We wanted a rich, strong flat colour that brings warmth to the room when in light and when in shade.Worsted does exactly that! It is a true flat grey with few hints or tones of other colours in it.We have paired it with crisp clean white woodwork which makes this striking colour 'pop' even more.A true classic grey that is warm and looks elegant in any light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the best paint in my mind I have in the passed used a fair amount of Farrow and Ball paint as we just love the colour range and quality, is second to none and worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend Farrow and Ball paint I love this paint. I have been using it for the last 10 years and I would never use anything else. No drips, no waste, never fades. The colour remains the same throughout the years. Delivery was prompt. Very happy with my choice as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish I have been a satisfied customer of Farrow & Ball for many years. I find that their paints and emulsions, both moderna estate, give excellent depth of colour and finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worsted is the bestest! Just painted the chimney breast and alcoves in worsted and it's absolutely fantastic, so pleased. Took a good 3 coats but the results were excellent. Have teamed this colour with Ammonite and Purbeck stone - perfect combo! Paint is quite expensive but you really do get what you pay for.
