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

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.

Thick, not too thick, super cute

By

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.
