These smooth machine knit gray wool stockings have a smaller foot size (6-8) for those petite feet or young adults. They 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 Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls, Pennsylvania Gazette of 1776 included “Run away . . .  servants, viz. Frederick Brick, a German, born in the country of Hesse . . .  Had on and took with him . . .  a pair of ribbed and a pair of plain worsted stockings.”
