Find Me A Mismatch

When the weather gets cold, nothing beats a snuggly pair of socks, and 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, but expect an arrangement of autumn hues such as rich golds, dark greens, deep purples and chocolate browns. 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. Sold as a pair.

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

Marianne Wakerlin

Marianne Wakerlin, the 'Socklady' was the founder of Solmate Socks. The company is named after her mom, Sunny, who taught Marianne how to knit when she was nine years old. Marianne continued a life long enthusiasm for knitting, but it wasn't until she started knitting socks that her real passion was born.

Within a few years Marianne had knit over one hundred pairs of socks for family and friends, and she decided to turn her hobby into a business. Her colorful and complex patterns are knit in the USA at a family owned knitting mill, hand finished and then "mismatched with care."

Crafted with care in the USA from recycled cotton. Her yarns are created by recovering the scraps from the production of other cotton products, mainly t-shirts. All of the little cotton scraps are gathered together and ground up so that they can be re-spun into "new" yarn. The yarns are then knit into her colorful socks. These recycled yarns are certified to be free from harmful substances (i.e. toxins like formaldehyde), made with respect for the environment and with respect for human rights.

The company is run in a small town in central Vermont, where the Socklady and all her helpers are surrounded and inspired by the woods, brook, gardens and hills of the countryside.

        I bought three pairs for various people this holiday season, and my mother-in-law in particular LOVED them and asked me to get her another pair. She said they are 'A Dream', and from her that is saying a lot.

                    These are the most expensive socks that I have ever purchased, but they are worth every cent: They are soft and comfortable, and the perfect weight for just about any of my shoes. I'm a nurse in a very busy ER and I spend about thirteen hours a shift in Dansko clogs-these socks are perfect. I must confess that I ignore the laundering directions and wash them in warm water: I use fabric softener, and I dry them with everything else. They are perfect.
