Common 18th Century stocking, made from 100% wool 2 ply "Soft Spun" yarn that is woven and dyed by the same mill that has been producing quality yarns since 1857.  Completely hand knit, no knitting machines used to construct these stockings.  Made with late 18th century style "common" heel.  These stockings are a tighter knit and softer to the touch stocking when compared to our regular 2 ply stocking.  Very good for all seasons.  Please use your modern shoe size when ordering.  Sizes up to 11 require a medium and larger than 12 require a large size.  Commonly stocked colors are listed on the drop down menu.  Special order colors and other colors are available, please email for details.  If you desire thinner weight stockings, please see our"Single Ply" stocking choice as they are hand knit from one ply yarns and are much lighter weight than the 2 ply stockings.  In terms of thickness, these soft-spun stockings would be "medium" when compared to the 2 ply regular stockings and the single ply stockings.

  1. Great looking, warm, and hand knit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2015

    I bought these for my wife as "boot socks" and she loves them. They look great and work well with her riding style boots. She also wears them around the house and to bed to keep her legs warm. I like supporting quality products and companies like this.

  2. Wonderful pair of stockings 5 Star Review

    You just can't go wrong with these stockings, they are hand knit and correct for anything 18th century or earlier and most importantly they fit very well.
