Since When Have We Been Wearing Socks?

Socks protect against frostbite in cold countries and absorb perspiration in warmer climates. The earliest socks, 8th century BC, were made of animal skins or matted animal hair. Later they were made of leather or woven fabrics. By the year 1000 the European nobility embraced socks which by now had become a symbol of wealth. It was not until the 16th century that socks became commonplace. The invention of the knitting machine meant that socks could be knitted much faster that those made by the handknitters.
