These thick, durable stockings are your best friend on a cold winters day. They're our traditional heavyweight wool stockings with a lovely addition of a simulated seam down the back of the leg.


Historical Note-
A majority of the earliest non-handknit extant stocking examples surviving in museum collections feature a seam on the back of the leg. This occurred when they were produced on a stocking loom in a flat shape, then seamed together at the back to fit the leg. Seams survived in common fashion all the way up to recent times when modern ladies nylons in the 1950s were still being made with them.
