What is a Stockinette? 

Stockinette is a tubular knitted material usually worn over arms, elbows, wrists, ankles, knees, or other parts of an extremity to offer uniform protection. They are commonly used under casts or splints to protect the skin. Stockinette helps wick away moisture and keep the affected area dry and comfortable. Stockinette dressing conforms well to body contours and evenly distributes pressure providing support and relief to ligaments, tendons, and joints. Tubular stockinette bandages are usually made of cotton or polyester.
