Comfy wooly socks

Hi All,

I have primary Lymphodeama which affects both legs and my left arm. I am having great difficulty in finding any socks that will fit me without constricting my legs. I wear compression garments daily and would really like to find some comfy wooly socks to relax in at the end of the day, does anyone know where I can possibly get any ?

I have been to most outoor shops but even their biggest dont fit.

I look forward to any feedback.

M&S do 'soft tops'.

Comfy Feet Shoes have a selection on their website.

Failing that - take up knitting!

If you put 'diabetic oedema socks' into search on ebay you will see quite an assortment. I found mine there

Hi

They need to be all wool for the miracle

effects of wool fibres to help the circulation. I wish I could find some -,perhaps just a small proportion of

elastine. Does anyone know a source of

all wool?

Have tried alpaca wool socks? Look on the internet for a supplier. They are supposed to be warmer than sheeps wool and they have anti-bacterial qualities.

Not woolly, but soft, warm cotton. Knee high, very stretchy but gentle grip. Very comfortable and worn constantly by my partner who is also Type 1 diabetic. Gets them from Able2 Wear.

Cosyfeet are good, expensive though. Big Bloomers do knee-highs
