18th century hand knit stockings - 2 ply gray

George Washington, Daniel Morgan, George Rogers Clark...this is what they were wearing on their feet when forging our nation!  We are excited to offer these early to mid 18th century stockings.  These stockings feature a true early style "common" heel as well as a correctly knit top band. These stockings were developed after research and consultation with some of the foremost authorities on 18th century knitted goods. Our reproductions are made from 100% handspun  and hand dyed yarns.  The yarns are much lighter weight and tighter woven than our earlier 2 ply stockings, and only slightly heavier than our single ply stockings.  

Currently have a couple of pair of white stockings in stock and a few pair of gray.  Orders that are not able to be filled currently will be filled in June.

    If you want an enlisted man's wool stocking of the 17th and 18th Centuries, you found it!

    These are bulky, hand knit stockings of coarse wool as would have been issue in the period armies of the Seven Years's War, American Revolution and into the early 19th Century. They have the period construction with the center rear seam. They look and feel right.
