Stockings, Socks & Legwarmers:
Sally uses antique hand-cranked stocking machines dating from the 1890s-1910 to make these wool and silk stockings. Hand-braided silk garters are a nice additional accessory. Our stockings are used by re-enactors, films, theater, museums and connoisseurs of handmade leg-wear the world over.
IMPORTANT NOTE:Please note that recent family circumstances mean its not currently practical for Sally to commit to regular stocking orders As soon as things are a little calmer we'll set a new order date for custom work, in the meantime, any stockings currently available are in the 'in stock' section of the shop. Thanks for your patience!
HOW TO ORDER: We have far more demand for stockings than Sally can keep up with, so we generally only open this page for new orders once every six weeks (approximately). Keep an eye on this notification, or on our our Facebook page or Instagram for updates on the next ordering opportunity. When the page goes 'live' again, please be ready to order as soon as possible, its not at all unusual for all the available spaces for orders to fill up in under ten minutes! Once all the slots are full, the page will shut again and we won't be taking any more orders until the next order date. You can still click on listings whilst the shop is shut to see descriptions, but be aware that things like colour choices and size drop downs may not show up. All our sizing refers to UK shoe sizes.
NEXT ORDER DATE: See note above
If you have a question about a current order, do feel free to email. Its only Sally making these here and we strongly feel that quality is more important than quantity. If you are a heritage site or theater wardrobe needing to order via a purchase order system, please email and we can discuss how to fit in your requirements. Thanks for your patience!
Overseas clients: We strongly advise you choose a "tracked"post service when you checkout as world post services are being rather slower than usual during current events and it makes sense to be able to see where your parcel has got to! It is possible that sales to the EU and Northern Ireland via this site may have to stop at the end of June when the new VAT regulations come into effect.
