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 DAFFODIL SOCKS:

          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 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!

          After buying one pair and wearing, I bought myself 3 more pairs. Also bought for friends who loved and bought themselves extras. It took 3 years for first pair to wear out after heavy use.
          Also recycled cotton, started by a fellow human.

            The socks are beautiful, and very unique. Also a plus is that they are made from scraps from t-shirt making, yielding a great product from what would otherwise be thrown away. Use, not refuse!!
