Product Review for Solmate Socks

By Dr. Erin Winter, MD

Solmate Socks are crafted in a family owned knitting mill in a small town in central Vermont from recycled cotton yarns. The yarn is created by recovering the scraps from the production of other cotton products and they only use recycled yarn, certified by Made in Green and Oeko-Tex. This means that all of their socks are certified free from harmful substances, which is good for our health and the health of our planet! I like that they have also committed to an environmentally preferable products purchasing policy, supporting suppliers that also believe in conservation and recycling and are an official Vermont Business Environmental Partner.

Solmate Socks’ motto is “Life’s too short to wear matching socks!” Each pair comes in a matching color scheme but with varying patterns. I have gotten many compliments on these socks, especially when they peek out of the bottom of my boring, blue hospital scrubs! Since it always seems like socks go missing, their children and infant socks are even sold with an extra! I only wish the adult pairs did too! They are comfortable and I would rate them as a low to moderate warmth sock as they are only made with cotton and a little bit of nylon and rayon for stretch. These are best worn at work…, but likely not with your ski and snowboard boots!

Order a pair from or find them in one of your local stores using their store finder on the website. I especially like the new Winter Celebration series!*
