The 411 On Core-Spun

Whether you’ve recently decided to look into wearing compression for the first time or you’ve been wearing compression garments for years, it can be difficult to navigate the countless options available to you.

And it’s no wonder – There are several brands, styles, colors, and levels of compression to consider and even then, not all brands have the same sizing chart which makes it even more difficult if you (or your doctor) decide to switch brands later.

There are several benefits that come with wearing compression, however, not all brands are created equal. One such example is our patented Core-Spun by Therafirm technology which is used in all of our knit compression.

What Is Core-Spun?

We’ve been in the compression business for a little while now (over 50 years) and one of the first things we discovered was that a lot of people just weren’t happy with their compression garments. Whether it was too difficult to put on, uncomfortable to wear or just too expensive after having to constantly replace compression that would tear too easily, it was clear that the compression-wearing world needed a solution.

That’s when we created Core-Spun, a process of twisting yarn fibers around an inner fiber, creating one yarn.

Unlike the yarn qualities of other brands, our patented Core-Spun technology enhances the functional properties of fabrics, paying special attention to stretchiness and comfort as well as long-lasting durability:

Additionally, our Core-Spun Support Socks consist of spandex as the “core yarn” with moisture wicking yarns as the “sheath” of twisted yarns around the elongated core. Simply put, the fibers wick moisture away from the skin to the exterior of the sock, moving the moisture up and out of the foot area. The result is a sock that is comfortable and cool all day long.

So to re-cap: Our Core-Spun technology was developed to meet the needs of those who crave high-quality, comfortable compression legwear that is cool, long-lasting and affordable.

And while brands, styles and colors may change over the years, your expectations for what to expect in compression legwear shouldn’t. At Therafirm, our biggest goal is to continue being the leading innovator in compression technology by always finding ways to surpass your expectations.
