The genius behind this particular brand of madness is Marianne Wakerlin, the Socklady of Vermont and here is her story. We really like her line "mismatched with care".
Marianne Wakerlin, the Socklady is the founder and owner 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.
The company is run in a small town in central Vermont, where the Socklady is surrounded and inspired by the woods, brook, gardens and hills of the countryside.
Solmate Socks is proud to be an official Vermont Business Environmental Partner (www.vbep.org). We are, and always have been since the company started in the year 2000, committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, and the community in which we conduct our business.
