Chester County PA Civil War Soldier Socks

(9 reviews) Write a Review
Original circular for making the socks

This sock is made from an original broadside instructing the citizens of the Philadelphia area to make these socks for the Philadelphia Sanitary Commission Fair during the Civil War.  Ours is a faithful reproduction made according to the original instructions from 100% wool and would be the perfect complement to your Civil War impression!  Note - our reproductions are completely hand knit and are not made on a late 19th century machine, as are some reproductions being offered.  We are committed to authenticity and will not take short cuts with our socks!

    Was able to wear them a week after I received them. Wore them all day. They stayed up well and were comfortable in my boots. Very happy with the socks.

    I ordered these socks a few days ago and the fit and length where just perfect right out of the package. Next, I put my brogans on and took a spin around the back yard, and I have no difficulties to report; simply a great pair of well made socks, thank you

    Best period socks!

    Posted by Allen K. on 28th Jun 2015

    These are the best CW period socks I've ever seen or owned. The pic doesn't do them justice. I am thinking of getting a second pair to wear around the house during winter. They are very thick so I don't think I will wear them in July but in the Spring and Fall months of campaigning.
