One pair of vintage 1950s short school-type socks.

The colour is called "oatmeal" - it is a beige/fawn colour.
Plain knit, suitable for either sex.
Wool/cotton mixture with Lastex.
Made by Viyella.
The socks are marked with Viyella's 1950s slogan:
If it shrinks, We replace.
And with their older trademark:
"Day and Night Wear"

Made in England in the 1950s.
They were unsold shop stock from the 1950s, and have been in storage at the shop ever since.
Size
These socks are marked with SOCK sizes - this is based on foot length (in inches), and is NOT the same as shoe sizes.
Here is a guide to help you choose the right size.
  • Sock size 7"......................UK shoe size 10 - 11 (children's size, age 5 years approx)

Please remember that these are very old socks, and they are not as stretchy as modern ones.
Condition
These socks are vintage stock, made in the 1950s.
They are unused, and most of them still have the original stickers attached from the 1950s.
The socks are obviously very old, and have been in storage for over half a century.
They will need to be hand-washed before use.
When you take the sticky tags off, it may leave a mark.
