The legacy of Solmate Socks reaches back two generations to the owner's Grandmother, known by the nickname “Sunny”. Grandma Sunny taught her granddaughter, Marianne Wakerlin, to knit when she was nine years old and the family lived in Spain. Those foundational knitting lessons inspired Marianne's lifetime devotion to fiber arts, and eventually led to her creating Solmate Socks.
In honor of the 20th Anniversary of Solmate Socks, we decided to rejuvenate the Sunny Sock, which was one of the very first socks Marianne Wakerlin made in wool. These colors are inspired by the original Sunny Sock, this time using our signature recycled cotton yarn.
