Hello

This is from a vintage wool box and indicates that...
'La laine sert à repriser les articles de grosse Bonneterie, Bas et Gilets de Chasse etc...'

large hosiery items???

Thanks for your :idea:

    I am guessing it is wool stockings by opposotion to silk ones (for exemple). How about coarse or heavy hosiery?

    That type of yarn would be called sports weight nowadays, but I am not sure the term was used in the days where stockings were still mended by hand instead of being thrown away.
