Purple - Cotton Lisle - Women
These purple knee-high socks are 100% cotton lisle and are produced by Gammarelli, who have served as tailors to the Papacy since 1798.
While Gammarelli’s red socks are their most legendary, there’s plenty of history in their purple socks too. These purple socks are made for the bishops, who are dressed head to toe in this special shade of purple. They are knitted in Italy using the finest Egyptian cotton lisle yarn, a famously fine and light thread.
You can afford to be very flexible with these knee-high socks: they’ll stand-out just as much as they’ll adapt to the rest of your outfit; wear them to either create a contrast with darker colours or to add a sparkle to outfits that are already bursting with colour. An excellent accessory to red and blue colour schemes. The world’s your oyster when you wear these famous purple knee-high socks.
Knee-high socks have two main advantages: they won’t fall down, and they cover the entirety of your leg, creating the perfect transition between your trousers and shoes without showing any skin!
