First off, don’t panic. A small snag or loose thread on your compression stockings isn’t the end of the world. But it would be a good idea to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t get larger. For small snags, try to pull the thread back through the stocking with a needle. Or you can use clear fingernail polish or a fabric nonfray liquid to seal the snag and prevent it from getting worse. Be sure to use your donning gloves to protect your stockings while putting them on and taking them off to prevent further snags.
