Socks being worn on feet
A hand knitted sock
A sock is an item of clothing worn on the feet. The foot is among the heaviest producers of sweat in the body able to produce over a pint of perspiration per day. Socks help to absorb this sweat and draw it to areas where air can evaporate the perspiration. In cold environments socks decrease the risk of frostbite. Its name is derived from the loose-fitting slipper called a soccus in Latin worn by Roman comic actors.
12th-century cotton sock found in Egypt. The knitter of this sock started work at the toe and then worked up towards the leg. The heel was made last and then attached to loops formed while knitting the leg. This practice allowed the heel to be easily replaced when it wore out.
Socks have evolved over the centuries from the earliest models which were made from animal skins gathered up and tied around the ankles. In the 8th century BC the Ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair for warmth. The Romans also wrapped their feet with leather or woven fabrics. By the 5th century AD socks called puttees were worn by holy people in Europe to symbolise purity.
