Best Foot Forward

Marianne Wakerlin's snappy, monochromatic accessories are hand-knit from skeins of recycled cotton yarn. With coordinated yet mismatched designs in a black-and-white palette, these cozy socks cleverly repurpose waste materials, getting more mileage out of perfectly good cotton strands while spinning a good yarn about the power of upcycling. By utilizing existing materials, the artists reduce the amount of water, land, pesticides and herbicides used to grow new cotton fibers, and they also eliminate the need for harmful chemicals to dye virgin cotton yarn. The sock designing, knitting, and finishing final touches are completed at small, family-owned businesses in Vermont, North Carolina, and Oregon.

Sizing info:

Small: Women's 6-8; Men's 5-7

Medium: Women's 8-10; Men's 7-9

Large: Women's 10-12; Men's 9-11

Made in Vermont

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.

            Have bought 'mismatched' socks before and love them. The material will wear out over time as all socks will especially if worn daily, walk a lot over rough surfaces in sock feet, or slide feet into / out of shoes frequently while wearing the socks because these quickly become your favorite socks especially in chilly temps.

              I was received these as a gift 2 years ago and love them so much that I'm giving them as gifts this year. They are great for end of the day wearing. These socks never seem to lose their fit or softness. Just a great purchase.
