Typically used as the initial layer of compression bandaging, tubular stockinette is a soft, skin friendly barrier between your skin and the foam and short stretch bandages that are applied afterwards. These products do not contain compression.
Stockinette is available by the yard, roll or box. Stockinette is made with a high cotton content, which makes it breathable and great for sensitive skin. Some styles are woven with silver fiber, which is naturally antibacterial. Silver stockinette is a great option if you have open wounds or ulcers on your skin as it can discourage the growth of bacteria.
