Fully Fashioned Stockings

Nothing Matches The Feel Of Fully Fashioned Nylons!

What Katie Did was founded through my love of fully fashioned stockings, and their scarcity, way back in 1999. There is no modern equivalent of the fully fashioned stocking, which are knitted flat with the seam actually holding the stocking together. To be fully fashioned the stocking has to be knitted on vintage Reading machines dating back to the 1950s. The Reading knitting machines are huge, slow and tempermental which makes the resulting nylons an indulgent luxury for most of us.

Manufacturing fully fashioned stockings is a labour of love: it certainly can't be classed as a 'get rich quick' scheme! Over the last few years the US company who made 'Sweet Caroline' fully fashioned stockings has closed meaning that only 3 working fully fashioned mills remain: two in the UK, one in France. The two British fully fashioned mills have changed hands in the last couple of years and although manufacturing seems to be on an even keel at the moment I remain uncertain on how long it will remain economically viable to produce what are undoubtably the ulitmate seamed nylon.
