Marianne Wakerlin
(​Soulmate ​Socks)

Marianne Wakerlin, the Socklady, is the founder and owner of Soulmate Socks. The company is named after her mom, Sunny who taught Marianne 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.
Whimsical and mismatched socks for adults, children and babies. Knit in the USA with recycled cotton yarn these are the most comfortable year-round socks you will ever find. A pair of Soulmate Socks is a totally unique and affordable gift for men and women of all ages. These socks are sure to bring a cheerful smile to the wearer.
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.​ Her colorful and complex patterns are knit in the USA at a family owned knitting mill, hand finished and then "mismatched with care."
