One the most commonly used articles of clothing that people have worn for thousands of years are socks. These wonderful pieces of clothing have been useful since their first debut as animal skin and fur foot wrappings. Of course they have had major changes as the materials that were used became more refined and developed. Turning the wool into thread in order to be woven into them was a really great advancement in clothing design.

From there we gained the use of cotton in the creation of socks and that has continued to this day to be one of the leading fabrics used in clothing manufacturing. Not long ago other types of materials came about such as nylon and other synthetic materials. The design of these articles of clothing has changed somewhat over the years, but the basic premise is the same. Socks are designed to completely cover the foot to provide warmth and to keep the feet dry.
