Black Wool Stockings

Made in the USA


These smooth machine knit black wool stockings will keep your feet warm and comfortable and will be easy to keep clean after a weekend in the mud. A study of runaways advertised in Rhode Island Newspapers found black made up 10% 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). Cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls, The Connecticut Courant of 1777 included "Run away . . .  a servant girl . . .  had on, and took with her . . .  black yarn stockings".
