Stockinettes are used as a general-purpose protective skin covering. Two types are available: plain and ribbed, both knitted from 100% unbleached cotton. Stockinettes are an inexpensive and convenient form of covering and protection for the skin, also suitable for use under cast materials: their knitted construction allows air to circulate over the skin, helping to avoid maceration of the protected area. Plain stockinette is a light covering, intended mainly for protecting bedding and clothing from creams and ointments used in dermatological treatment. Ribbed stockinette is a heavier material, more suitable for use as an undercast stockinette or for covering splinting materials. Both are available in a wide range of sizes designed to cover all parts of the body.
