Compression reduces swelling and build-up of fluid (including lactic acid) in the lower leg by gently squeezing your lower limb (highest compression is at the ankle) forcing the fluid up and preventing pooling in your legs, ankles and feet. Compression provides the added support required to help blood to circulate through veins in your lower legs. This reduces the development of symptoms of ache, itch, pain and swelling directly caused by poor sluggish blood flow in the lower legs.
Everyone can benefit from wearing compression daily. However, here at milkteds®, we believe milkteds® products should be ideally worn for preventative rather than treatment purposes. For those needing to wear compression for medical reasons, please consult your physician and wear the appropriate prescribed medical grade recommended compression product. In addition, we do not recommend our preventative compression wear to those under 16 years of age unless specifically recommended by their physician.
Unlike other compression products, milkteds® products have many innovative features. They are the first compression socks to be made from milk (yes, drinking milk!), a natural fibre which is skin nourishing, sanitizing, durable, moisture wicking with a silky smooth feel leaving you with an enhanced wearer experience. milkteds® products have many additional features and have our comfortable ‘signature cuff' making them a delight to wear, particularly for long periods.
The entire range contains milk fibre, and compression, which are easy to put on and take off and contain technology driven innovations in a luxury seamless finish that is manufactured to the highest standards in Italy.

You can wear milkteds® compression products as long as you feel comfortable in wearing them. If at any time, you feel any pain or too much pressure on any part of your body, you should remove the item immediately.

Yes, you can wear milkteds® daily, in fact that is what we recommend you do, as no harm will come to you from wearing milkteds® products continuously. We suggest you familiarise yourself with the contraindications of compression prior to wearing milkteds® and that you make sure you follow our wear instructions carefully.
Compression products may be a duty free product in your country. Please enquire from the relevant authority in your country as there should not be any additional charge added to your order except a shipment charge, if indicated. Customers are responsible for the import of products into their country and must abide by the regulations set by that country. The majority of our products are classed as medical compression products which should not incur any additional duties or charges, however different countries have different policies and these goods may be subject to import duties and tax, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Unfortunately, Milkthreads Ltd has no control over these charges and cannot predict the amounts charged. It is our understanding that personal purchase orders below 200 US dollars being sent to the US and orders below 1000 Australian dollars being sent to Australia will not incur any additional duties. However, any additional charges for customs clearance remain the customer's responsibility at all times. The following countries have a specfic customs charge which has to be paid to us by the customer at checkout before our couriers will collect the goods from our warehouse: Bosnia, Iceland, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland. The charge in force currently is £25.00
Yes, but due to the natural fibre used in our products which compliments your skin's own pH levels, we consider no additional lotions or creams are required and therefore to avoid creams that may potentially affect the quality of your milkteds® products.
Take care when putting the product on or taking off to avoid catching the fabric with your nails or jewellery. Avoid walking about without footwear as some flooring may damage or catch the fabric, and follow our.wash instructions carefully
No, please ensure the sock remains below the knee. If the sock appears to be slightly long for you, gently smooth out downwards below the knee and adjust to your lower leg length, trying to avoid any folds or creases along its entire length.
You can either re-order anything new you previously did not order and return any unwanted items when you order arrives or e-mail us at email@example.com to see if we can intercept you order to amend it accordingly.
