Wool Derby Ribbed Stockings


( / )


On March 25th, 1780 William Kellow, a Virginia store owner, advertised the theft of a long list of goods including "18 pair of worsted ribbed stockings." 

Wool stockings (such as our Wool Derby Ribbed Stockings) were commonly worn by the working classes. In 1759 Jebediah Strutt of Derby, England patented a machine which made the "perfect ribbed stocking", thus the term "Derby Rib"
