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 4.7 out of 5 by 121.

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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish We bought this to go on the ceiling of our new extension to compliment Peignoir on the walls. It looks wonderful - the light really bounces off the ceiling, and the colour changes beautifully with the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have spent this year decorating my whole apartment. I chose wevet for all my walls. When I got to my study I decided to just go all white and proceeded to use a different make of paint. Big mistake. It would have taken Coates for proper coverage of the walls. I bought another tin of wevet by FB and without doubt FB is by far superior. Lovely even coverage. A beautiful colour really easy to apply. I think FB is worth every penny. Highly delighted. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent neutral Tried sample pot of this along with cabbage white before committing. Chose Wevet and really liked the way it works with bright white woodwork and how different it looks in changing light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish and easy application Decided to paint original internal doors in this 1908 home. So glad I picked farrow and ball, Price tag is a bit scary but the quality of this paint is another level and a little goes a long way. Covered 5 interior Doors x 2 coats and window frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look I am so glad I bought this sample unfortunately it was too light for the rooms I wanted. I went on to buy skimming stone which I have bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A breath of fresh air! My lockdown project was to strip, sand and re-paint my darkwood utility room cupboards. Undercoat, plus two coats of Wevet have totally transformed them - a bright, crisp finish that makes them look brand new. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely soft white I bought this colour to go with Cornforth White panelling - see pictures. Really lovely colour - works beautifully. I didn’t want bright white walls in fear that it will look clinical. Wevet is perfect it’s an off white that works really well with F & B greys. The paint has a good consistency. One coat covered the previous cream underneath but we still went for two coats. This is modern emulsion- we chose this due to the great reviews on durability and easily washable as our dog likes the climb the walls! I intend to use it with ammonite as well in another room.
