Purple - Cotton Lisle - Women
These purple mid-calf (short) socks are 100% cotton lisle and are produced by Gammarelli, who have served as tailors to the Papacy since 1798.
This shade of purple is one of 4 iconic dyes used by Gammarelli to colour the papacy’s socks and is itself worn exclusively by papal bishops! It’s worth having a pair of these short purple socks in your wardrobe for their quality alone, their rich history is just a bonus!
This purple is very subtle: relatively light in colour, it will brighten up your darker outfits and bring out a stunning colour contrast when paired with trousers and shoes in black, navy or grey.
These purple mid-calf length socks are knitted in Italy using the finest Egyptian cotton lisle yarn, a famously fine and light thread. Reinforced at the toe and heel, these seamless socks have been knit loop by loop for extra comfort and a smooth finish.
Composition: 100% Cotton Lisle
