These smooth machine knit gray wool stockings have a smaller foot size (6-8) for those petite feet or young adults. They will keep your feet warm and comfortable. A study of runaways advertised in Rhode Island Newspapers found gray to be the second most common color of stocking from 1760 to 1783 (Stockings of Runaways Advertised in Rhode Island by Paul Dickfoss The Brigade Dispatch, Vol. XXXI No. 3, Autumn 2001). Cited in Wives, Slaves, and Servant Girls, The Connecticut Courant of 1777 included "Deserted from Capt. Beardslee’s company in Col. Swift’s regiment, on Wm. Bostwick, an Englishman . . . had on . . . gray stockings".
