Gio Fully Fashioned Cuban Heel Stockings
These fantastic Gio fully fashioned cuban heel stockings are made on the original reading machines to bring you the true elegant stockings of yesteryear.
All Gio Fully Fashioned Cuban Heel stockings are made using 100% Nylon on original Reading knitting machines, only a handful of which are still operational in the world today.
Gio Fully Fashioned Cuban Heel stockings are knitted flat on the Reading machines which are maintained by skilful knitters.
Furthermore the stockings are knitted from the top of the welt and are then shaped down the leg as the number of needles are increased and decreased to create the unique hosiery to fit your legs perfectly.
Most noteworthy each machine makes 30 stockings at one time using around 18 000 needles. The unique machines are kept between 74 and 78 degrees by the engineers to ensure they run smoothly.
In addition the machines run on a continual chain which has studs pressed into the links- this tells the machine which pattern to follow depending on which heel style is being knitted.
Each time a different Fully Fashioned heel style is made the machine chain is changed which is a huge operation.
Once the stockings come off the machine they are glass ironed which shows up any slight imperfections.
As a result this is where the stockings are separated into Perfects and Slight Imperfects by quality control.
Furthermore tissue paper is used to cover the boards to protect your nylons from snagging in transit.
Nylon Dreams recommend the use of hosiery gloves to protect and prolong the life of your hosiery these are available on this web site.
Therefore these stockings make a truly irrisistable choice for that special occasion.
