Fire & Ice

Keep those tootsies warm this winter with a snuggly pair of mismatched socks in fiery or frosty colors. Sharing the same hues and patterns, these festive socks are a fun take on the classic case of mismatched socks.

The color arrangements will vary for each sock, but expect an arrangement of reds, greens, yellow, blues for Poppy and blues, purples, greens for Grape. Handmade with recycled cotton yarn and dyed without the use of harmful chemicals. Knit and hand finished in Vermont by Marianne Wakerlin.

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: Poppy & Grape:

    I really like these so much I felt moved to check out the artist's website to check out more of her work and I plan on buying more pairs. No they aren't that warm to me but I am anemic (and this is winter) so I'm already colder than most people. However on cuteness and comfort alone I love 'em!

    Comments about Mismatched Socks: Poppy & Grape:

    I understand how handmade items have their nuances. These socks are gorgeous to me, but feel on the small side for an adult male. They feel as if they will stretch easily and constantly slip down. Maybe there isn't enough elastic in the cuff or something.

        I use these socks in lieu of slippers. I love that they keep my feet warm without overheating (slippers and fleece socks overheat my feet). I've had a pair of these socks (in a different pattern) for two years, and I wore them so much, they wore out. I loved them so much, I just had to get a new pair!

                I have 2 pairs of these myself, so I know the quality is good. The mismatched socks are fun but not obnoxious. I wear mine to work all the time, and I get great compliments.

                  I enjoy wearing the socks because the colors and patterns are so cheerful and comfortable. The socks provoke surprise from others who don't suppose that I might be so bold as to wear such socks.
