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 138.

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.


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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle and bright We chose this colour to offset Stiffkey Blue on facing walls in our kitchen redecorate and are delighted with the effect. It's subtley not pure white so has a little warmth. It covers well and is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint Farrow & Ball were recommended to me , so this is my first purchase. I'm most not very good at painting and such like, but when I tested this paint it went on the wall so smoothly it felt like the brush was gliding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great White I ordered white emulsion and white full gloss 2005 and they are superb. Real top quality products and produced amazing finish. Also purchased roller and brushes at the same time and they were equally as good. Delighted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five star Usual ultra-fast delivery. The paint is excellent and very easy to apply, and the colour saturation and range are second to none. The range of whites is totally unsurpassed by any other manufacturer, which means that ordinary plain whites, and especially the ghastly 'brilliant white' can (and should) be eliminated from any decor. There is no excuse for using boring colours in your abode!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtly striking After much deliberation I decided on Wevet for my dark hallway. The end result is just what I wanted; fresh and airy with a subtle hint of grey. It was also really easy to apply with great coverage. Will definitely be using Farrow & Ball Modern Emulsion for future projects.
