19th Century Socks - 2ply Wool

(20 reviews) Write a Review
U.S. Sanitary Commission Socks
In stock

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.  These socks are a staple item of our business, and customers have loved them for years!  Hand knit from 100% hand spun woolen yarns.

  • Hand knit from 100%, 2 ply woolen yarns.
  • Knit using period patterns from the U.S. Sanitary Commission
  • Available using solid colors or with contrasting heel and toe colors

    These are really thick and stay up. I wish I would have bought 2 pair when I had them in my hand.

    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+++

    A solid pair of foot covers!

    Posted by John A McPherson on 14th Oct 2019

    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.
