100% wool, one size fits most.
These smooth machine knit gray wool stockings will keep your feet warm and comfortable. A study of runaways advertised in Rhode Island Newspapers found gray to be the second most common color of stocking from 1760 to 1783 (Stockings of Runaways Advertised in Rhode Island by Paul Dickfoss The Brigade Dispatch, Vol. XXXI No. 3, Autumn 2001). Cited in Wenches, Wives and Servant Girls, The Connecticut Courant of 1777 included "Deserted from Capt. Beardslee’s company in Col. Swift’s regiment, on Wm. Bostwick, an Englishman . . . had on . . . gray stockings".
For best results launder your stockings inside out. Hang dry to retain shape. Made in the USA.
