Antique Sock Machines are Workhorses

Antique sock machines can knit over 10,000 stitches per minute!


Companies such as the Imperia Hosiery Manufacturing Company, the Lamb Knitting Machine Company, the Bickford Knitting Machine Company and the Franz and Pope Knitting Machine Company routinely advertised stitch counts in their publications.




Antique sock machines are creative workhorses.  There is virtually no end to the beautiful and useful things you can make on an antique sock machine.



Antique sock machines are timeless workhorses that operate without the use of electricity, batteries or petroleum.

100% of the energy utilised to operate the machine is derived from the human hand.  With each turn of the crank wheel, hundreds of stitches are produced.

With time and experience, you will be able to knit a pair of socks in about 1 - 1.5 hours on an antique sock machine.

Many knitters customarily knit a pair of socks in an evening!  Imagine that!

In addition, your "workhorse" will allow you to knit through that huge stash of yarn that has been sitting idle for so long.......only to send you off to the knitting store for more!
