A delicate white with a hint of grey

This delicate white has a barely there and almost translucent feel to it, and so shares its name with the old Dorset term for a spider’s web. One of our Easy Neutrals, Wevet is clean, understated and incredibly easy to live with. With its hint of grey, this hushed tone can be used as a wall colour for a neutral contemporary space or on ceilings and woodwork when combined with cooler greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Wevet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 156.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this paint I am a first time F&B user and bought Wevet Eggshell to paint 7 doors and all the woodwork in my hall. It was lovely to paint with and went on very smoothly, was very quick drying and non drip. It only needed one coat which was a relief as I had a lot to do. I loved the flat matt finish and I have now started paining my walls in Oval Room Blue which it looks great with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful subtle white Love this white. It’s subtle with a barely there pink tone that is great in our front room to keep it warm. I’ve painted the fireplace in the black Railings which I also love from Farrow and Ball and it’s stunning. I love this white so much I’m going to use it in my bedroom next. I was an unbeliever but now I’m convinced that the quality of F&B paint is superior and it goes on so well. I’m converted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Luxury Once again F&B came up trumps when I ordered Stiffkey Blue emulsion and Estate eggshell together with F&B recommended undecoat the overall finnish is excellent, Rich deep colour. Water based and easy to apply. One thing you must do when applying the Estate Eggshell, work fairly quickly and brush out to a smooth finish to acheive an even paint layer. Direction of brushing out is important especially on timber surfaces such as wood square panelling always keep to one finish direction with the brush stokes to acheive an amazing overall consistent finish with a deep lustre! I highly recommend it!
