Here it may be stated that “Pre-Shrunk” nylon yarn (yarn which has been pre-set) is sometimes used for the welts of stockings, presenting an added feature in that greater elasticity is contributed to that portion of the hose where it is most required.
“No-Seam” stockings cannot be made on fully-fashioned machines.
Seamless machines knit 15, 20, or 30 Den. multi-filament nylon into stockings which are wisps of loveliness. The stockings produced on these machines are as fine as those made on 51 Gauge Fully-Fashioned frames, and the delicately sheer stockings being entirely free of seams, the streamlined effect is emphasised. Who shall say that by this means, the bogey of the twisted leg-seam may not be banished for ever!
Because the stockings are “circular-knit”, the absence of an under-foot seam ensures real walking comfort.
