U.S. Sanitary Commission Socks

Hand knit wool socks were the first hand knit item that we began carrying back when we only had a period peddler's cart to peddle from at events.  Since that time we have always offered these socks to our customers and continue to receive very positive comments about their quality, comfort, and durability.  These socks are taken from the U.S. Sanitary Commission patterns that were designed for relief of the soldiers at the front.  The yarns used in our socks come from a North American mills that has been in business since 1857.  The wool is spun and dyed in this mill before going to our knitters to be made into our knit products.  These socks are they are advertised as; completely hand knit from North American yarns by individual North American craftspeople who receive a fair wage for their labor and skill.  We have been in partnership with these craftspeople for quite some time and are honored to support a guild that honors and preserves such "old world" skills and traditions.

  • Hand knit from 100%, 2 ply woolen yarns.
  • Knit using period patterns from the U.S. Sanitary Commission

    2PLY 19th Century Foot Coverings

    Posted by Ryan Stubbins 79th NYSM on 2nd May 2020

    I could not be more pleased with these foot coverings. They are well crafted and made with top quality wool yarn. I will be ordering a couple more pair and recommending my mess mates do the same. These may seem on the expensive side however given the time put into making these I feel they are worth every penny+++

    The pair of socks arrived quickly and fit quite well. This my third pair; I purchased my other two pairs just over a decade ago. It was time for another set for yet another series of road marches.

    The socks fit as expected and appear to be very well made. They are quite thick, being two ply wool. They are for a 19th century costume and are perfect for it.
