You've Met Your Mismatch

These cozy, colorful socks are a perfect mismatch: Sharing the same hues and the same pattern, each sock exchanges colors for a chromatically congruous take on the classic case of mismatched socks. The color arrangements will vary for each sock. Really...life's too short for matching socks. Knit and hand finished in Vermont by Marianne Wakerlin. The yarns are recycled cotton, dyed without the use of harmful chemicals.

Due to the recycled nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“It always gives me a thrill to see something I created on someone I don’t know.”

Surrounded by the brooks and fields of rural Vermont, there lives a Socklady. Marianne Wakerlin, the self-proclaimed “Socklady”, is a designer of colorful, upcycled footwear. At age nine, her mother taught her the delicate practice of knitting, and years later she’d make it into a profession. Marianne’s yarn is made from recovered scraps from the production of other cotton products, mainly t-shirts. Along with her team at the knitting mill, she grinds up the scraps so they can be respun into new, vibrant threads. For inspiration, Marianne turns to the great outdoors or her budding artist daughter, whose mixing of colors and patterns serves as a constant source of inspiration.

      Comments about Mismatched Socks:

      While I got these for my sister for Christmas, I couldn't resist & so added a pair for me. A couple of weeks after the holidays, I got a note from my sister saying that she was wearing them & loved them. I had to agree; they are so bright (daffodil design), so comfortable, and so nicely warm in this brutal winter, that I'd love to get another pair, or two or three...

            These weren't exactly the color family shown, but this is to be expected with a one-of-a-kind, handmade item. Nice to have a description from the artist to include with the gift. Like that these are made from reclaimed yarns:) My niece, who makes a fashion statement by frequently wearing mismatched socks, really seemed to like them!
