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 month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 4-6 weeks. 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.
