A Mismatch Made In Heaven

These cozy, colorful baby 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. Because 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 set of 5.

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

  • the maker

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.

      Comments about BABY DRAGONFLY MISMATCHED SOCK SET:

      I loved the mismatched theme, and so did my friend who was enjoying her 5th child. She is very careful about organic food, avoiding harmful chemicals and such, so I could confidently tell her she had nothing to worry about with these socks with the nice big tag saying so. She loved them. Our only complaint is the spare needs a mate. I did not see anywhere that they were two pair and a spare and expected 3 pairs of socks. I tried to find it on the packaging, and it was nowhere. Just be aware, these are cute, soft, well made but you will only get 5.

      Comments about BABY DRAGONFLY MISMATCHED SOCK SET:

      We like mis-matched socks, so I knew I had to purchase these for my first Grandbaby. I thought they would be a smaller size, but we will save them for later when she grows into them.

            I loved these! They look hand-knit, with all kinds of crazy colors and patterns - no two the same, but they all go together, so you don't have to be fastidious about matching any specific two. Warm, too. And how great there are five - saves me the trouble of losing one in the dryer. ;-)
