Purple Gammarelli socks Gammarelli are 100% lisle cotton or 80% Merino wool-20% nylon. These purple socks are knitted from the best cotton fabric, using very long cotton fibers. They are hand knitted and go up to the knees. Gammarelli has been the Pope's tailor since 1798.
If the myth of Gammarelli socks begins with red socks, it carries on with purple socks. The purple socks are those of the bishops, dressed in this distinct purple, which lasted many centuries. Their colour itself, is closer to red than blue. These purple socks can be worn in a very free way, able to adjust to the rest of your outfit. Purple socks would be a nice fit with an accessory in a red or blue tone, as well.Ref "6110520246438"
