No man, woman, or child should be in the field without an extra pair. A good pair of wool socks were one of the greatest delights a solider, Union or Confederate, enjoyed during the Civil War. Winslow Homer’s engraving “Christmas Boxes in Camp—Christmas 1861,” which appeared on the cover of the January 4, 1862, Harper’s Weekly, depicted a group of soldiers joyfully receiving a crate of gifts, including new stockings. John L. Hayes, a wool lobbyist, called stockings, “…the class of clothing the most indispensable for the health and comfort of our soldiers.”
Our mid-calf wool socks are 85% Wool, 14% Nylon and 1% Spandex and are made in Medium (Men’s 6 to 8-/12) and Large (Men’s 9 to 12). Proudly made in the U.S.A.
