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.
