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.
