You are planning your dream holiday, tickets are paid for, suitcases down from the loft ready to pack. in the back of your mind you know that you should be wearing ‘travel socks’ (graduated compression) on your flights. why would you risk developing swollen ankles or a dvt (deep vein thrombosis) ? everyone has heard horror stories of people becoming seriously ill with a dvt. but why do these socks have to be so uncomfortable, tight, itchy… you feel like you want to rip them off after half an hour!
fear not, as sockwell socks are a pleasure to wear, they will be unlike any travel or medical sock you have worn before. they are made from superfine merino wool and bamboo, are gentle on the skin and keep your legs at an even temperature. sockwell socks are made in fashionable patterns, so they look like a normal pair of socks. the graduated compression will encourage the blood flow in the veins whilst you are sitting and your calf muscles are not moving.
with styles for men and women in two sizes, they are simple to select and your only difficult choice will be the colour and style! no special care is needed as sockwell are machine washable and air dry quickly due to the natural fibres. once worn, you may be tempted to wear them daily as they are also perfect to keep your legs energised, reducing the risk of developing varicose veins if you sit or stand for long periods of time during the day.
