Funky Feet

Inspired by the colors of the autumn horizon, Marianne Wakerlin's wildly styled socks are hand-knit from skeins of recycled cotton yarn. In a funky palette with coordinated yet mismatched designs, these cozy accessories repurpose perfectly good cotton strands, which reduces the amount of water, land, pesticides, and herbicides used to grow new cotton fibers and eliminates the need for harmful chemicals to dye virgin cotton yarn. The design, knitting, and finishing final touches for these socks 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.
