Natural White Ribbed Wool Stockings
Made in the USA
These smooth machine knit creamy white wool stockings have a smaller foot size (6-8) for those petite feet or young adult and will keep your feet warm and comfortable. At the time of writing this, I’ve found no descriptions of women wearing ribbed stockings. The book Cloth and Costume determined that white was likely the most common color of stocking. 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.” These are knit of 99% wool with 1% nylon at the tops to help hold them up.
