Imagining your legs resting on a cloud and wearing compression socks are probably not images you would put together. But you will when you try the Milk Sock.
This amazing compression stocking is woven using milk fiber. Milk fiber is made from casein, a protein in milk, and was developed in the 1930's. Milk fiber is extremely soft and silky, but fell out of fashion after WWII when cheaper synthetics like nylon became available. A small hosiery mill near Verona, Italy combines milk fiber with viscose, nylon and spandex to make this wonderful sock.
The Milk Sock provides moderate graduated compression of 18-22mmHg, which makes it great for everyday wear, mild swelling, standing or walking for long periods of time, and for travel. When we photographed this sock, our model yelled "wow" when she put it on. This stocking is so soft against your skin, you will hardly feel the compression.
Hand or machine wash in warm water on gentle cycle using a mild detergent. To preserve compression lifespan, we recommend hang dry. Do not bleach, dry clean or iron.

Though these socks were recommended by the representative who wears them herself and are good quality, they did not work for me. I was so hopeful these would fit well and be my new compression sock to replace a discontinued brand, but they were too long and the ankle section too tight, so if they can be returned it is my plan to do so.

These are the best fitting knee high socks and the support is very good
Very disappointing, August 5, 2016 By Anonymous (TX)
The socks are heavier and thicker than I had anticipated, but the most disappointing thing is that after wearing them three times, I discovered a hole in the top of one of the socks near the top band. Cannot, in good faith recommend these to anyone.
Allegro Milk Socks, April 27, 2016 By Janie Joswick (Broken Arrow, OK)
I recently bought 3 different brands of knee high compression socks. I liked 2 brands just fine, but I LOVE MY ALLEGRO PREMIUM MILK SOCKS! They are super soft and stay in place all day without hurting my legs. I highly recommend them to anyone after surgery.

I bought three pair of cotton and the customer service rep suggested I try a pair of Milk Socks as well. Super comfortable! Great recommendation.
Great socks, February 17, 2016 By Gavin Davis (Pasadena, CA)
I was hesitant to dive in and purchase compression sock, but now one month later I am glad that I did. Of the variety that I purchased I have to say that these are the most versatile - they look dressy enough to wear to work and can easily be worn in a casual setting too.
My one complaint, but really not a complaint, is that based on the description on the product page I was expecting the most amazing material ever created, but truthfully it just feels like a really nice cotton/wool blend.
Overall great socks and I would say they are the nicest, most comfortable socks I own, but I do not cry out "wow!" when I put them on.
Very soft., February 11, 2016 By Carole L (Phila, PA)
Really nice - ranks up there with EASE. Goes on smoothly; almost fits my size 11 foot; and is easy to remove. Will definitely buy more. But I'm looking for tan or Khaki, etc. - which are not an option now.
Great Socks, But Not For People With Thin Legs, January 31, 2016 By Judith Newman (Metairie, LA)
I bought these for my mother because I have some and love them. Unfortunately, she can't wear them because her calf muscle is too small, and the socks don't come any smaller. Her calf measures 10", for anyone trying to decide if they will fit. The size chart for these socks doesn't list a calf size, only the ankle and shoe size. These socks are baggy on her, don't provide any support, and won't stay up. Needless to say, I returned them. For people with a larger calf size they're great socks, which is why I gave them four stars.
Great Socks, January 10, 2016 By Judith Newman (Metairie, LA)
I love these socks. They are very comfortable and easy to put on, just what I need for winter. I wear the calf sleeves in the summer because I like to go barefoot, but in the winter I prefer a footed product. When I first got these, they looked like they might not be long enough and/or not stay up well, but I soon found out neither of these was the case. They are plenty long enough (and I have long legs), and they stay up just fine. There really is nothing not to love about these socks. Will definitely buy again.

Terrific Socks, December 30, 2015 By Anonymous (NEW YORK, NY)
These are the most comfortable socks I have ever worn.
AMAAAAZING!, December 29, 2015 By Marge
These socks are amazingly comfortable. They feel great on my skin and very easy to put on. Usually I struggle a bit to get my socks on, but these just slide right on and I still get the compression I need. A++

AMAZING!, December 10, 2015 By Anonymous (Washington, DC)
I love, love, love these socks! They are perfect for wearing to work and are so incredibly soft! I sit a lot for my job and my legs feel so great in these socks. I find myself doing laundry more often, just so I can keep wearing these socks to work!
