100% wool, one size fits most.
These smooth machine knit light grey wool stockings will keep your feet warm and comfortable. A study on runaways found that grey was the second most common color of stockings from 1760 to 1783 (Stockings of Runaways Advertised in Rhode Island by Paul Dickfoss The Brigade Dispatch, Vol. XXXI No. 3, Autumn 2001). From personal communication with Mike Barbieri The Boston Gazette of 1764 included "Ran-away . . . in the Province of New Hampshire . . . a Servant Lad . . . Had on . . . grey Stockings."
For best results launder your stockings inside out. Hang dry to retain shape. Made in the USA.
