Made for use with Women's Land Army uniform, in a beige/fawn pure wool which is consistent with records for these stockings held at the IWM, these stockings have a fine mock rib in the cuff and a ribbed body. They are hand-wash only.
The stockings have a deep cuff which can be worn just over the knee or folded down as per original fashion, the toe and heel are fully fashioned for a comfortable fit. I am happy to make the leg length longer or shorter to suit your requirements. A twist of matching yarn for eventual mending is supplied.
Made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a quarter for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next three months or so. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
'Land Girl' Stockings
If you'd like these in a different shade altogether, they make excellent stockings with other ensembles, for example Edwardian cycling knickerbockers. Made slightly shorter they are also a good option with kilts.
If you are taller or shorter in the leg than most, let me know and I'll adjust the scaling to give you a good fit.
Most orders take about two-three weeks from ordering.
