Ladies' Long Woollen Socks

Why wear socks that only go halfway up your legs? They are neither elegant nor warm. Three seasons of the year, I wear knee-length or long-socks made of wool--here is my source, Woods of Shropshire. In summer, I wear knee socks knitted from cotton, even on the tennis court. Like waist-high skirts and trousers, they make your legs appear long--a classic, elegant look which has always been desirable.
