This is soft, comber white cotton yarn with heavy triple-roll cuff. Our girl wears both (above left). Another highlight of the spring sock collection for teen-agers is the brand new stretch sock with the real appeal of magic fit. This is in nylon yarn treated for extraordinary elasticity. Flexibility permits the sock to stretch to several times its normal size (above right), thus creating a new concept in both fit and sizing. This sock comes in two sizes only: medium and large. And it makes for a smooth, custom fit that eliminates both binding and snagging. Stretch door curtains that have a top and bottom rod by putting them back on the door while damp. Rods must be rust-proof and clean. Protect the woodwork with cardboard. PUPPIES —PARAKEETS KITTENS - CANARIES -TROPICAL FISH- SUPPLIES Leash, Collars.
