We began selling Core-Spun compression knee highs back in March 2009. They were an instant success – customers couldn’t stop raving about how stretchy and comfortable these socks were.
Core-Spun stockings are soft and ultra stretchy, so they’re easier to put on and take off. The secret is in the yarn. Knit-Rite, the company behind Core-Spun, wraps fibers of polyester around an inner core of Lycra creating one yarn. This soft, elastic, and durable yarn is now being knit into thigh high stockings.
New Core-Spun Thigh Highs are available in black and white, and in three compression levels, 15-20, 20-30, and 30-40mmHg. They have a silicone-dot band to keep the stocking comfortably in place. Designed for both men and women, Core-Spun thigh highs are available in a short and long length. Sizing is currently limited to Small through X-Large, however, later this year sizing will be available to fit an ankle up to 19” and a calf up to 39.5”. These will be the largest ready-to-wear sizes available in a compression thigh high.
If you need compression above the knee and you want a thicker material that’s easy to put on and take off, try a pair of the new Core-Spun Thigh Highs.
