Red - Merino Wool
Gammarelli’s iconic red knee-high merino wool socks, only available in knee-high length.
The Gammarelli name is famous not only because they have been the Pope's tailors for over 200 years, but also thanks to their legendary red socks! These socks are often mistakenly referred to as the Pope’s socks. However, the Pope (rather appropriately) wears white socks! These famous red socks are worn by the cardinals.
This red wool is more subtle than it may sound; it veers slightly more towards orange than Gammarelli’s cotton lisle red socks, which are brighter than their wool counterparts.
Wear this beautiful red to add a touch of refinement and elegance to your outfits; pair these socks with darker outfits to play around with colour contrasts or wear them with trainers for as a casual yet chic detail.
Knitted in Italy, these socks are woven from merino wool. Warm, soft, and not too thick, these woollen socks will slip easily into any shoe.
Composition: 80% wool – 20% Polyamide
