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.

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.

Mismatched socks

5

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.

Comfy!

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.
