Go Green

Marianne Wakerlin's wildly styled accessories are hand-knit from skeins of recycled cotton yarn. In funky colors with coordinated yet mismatched designs, 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

“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 UncommonGoods September Sun Mismatched Socks:

    Thick enough to be plushly comfortable, but not so thick that it changed his shoe size. Ran slightly small on him, but he was on the higher side of the size I chose for him.

    The socks are wonderful during the cold, harsh winter months. They are snugly and a cheerful addition to any assemblage. I especially like they they are a mismatch. Always an attention getter, always an opportunity to advertise the company and the product. And I always do.
