Silver Whinnys serve as an outstanding alternative to bandaging, and fly protection, a barrier used to protect legs while scratches; mud fever, summer sores, or wounds heal.
The socks breathe, allowing air to reach the skin surface, while moisture-managing yarns keep skin tissue dry.

With Silver Whinnys, valuable oxygen can reach the skin. The socks breathe. Oxygen has long been recognized as important to healing as it helps dry excessive moisture and allows more durable granulating tissue to develop. The socks also block dirt, insects, and debris that present obstacles to healing when sores and wounds are left open to the air. The double layer of woven sock provides a barrier against disease-carrying insects while protecting UV sensitive skin.
The silver in the socks makes an antimicrobial barrier that prevents dangerous microbes from reaching the tissue. Bacteria and fungi must pass through the double layer of protection in order to re-infect the skin. If the socks are changed daily with clean socks, the power of the silver to inhibit bacteria and fungi from passing through the socks to the tissue remains optimum. After the first 24 hours the sheer number of germs in a barn environment can finally overwhelm the silver in the socks, so changing them daily is important to keep the healing on track.
Silver Whinnys wick moisture from the skin surface. They absorb and remove the dampness caused by exuding body serums. This moisture is absorbed and transferred to the exterior of the sock where it can evaporate from the surface. Traditional bandaging traps damp, warm material against the wounds and dermatitis the same way that a dirty diaper holds undesirable moisture and materials against a baby’s tender skin. The wicking action of the socks helps keep the surface of the skin dry. It defeats the warm moist environment that bacteria and fungi must have to propagate.
Not only do the socks keep the tissue dry but also in the summer months, these moisture-managing properties of the socks keep legs cool. It is the same cooling action provided by a light cotton shirt that takes the sweat from your body and allows it to evaporate, thus cooling your skin temperature. SFH socks utilize the same moisture management yarns used in the highest quality athletic socks that keep feet dry and cool during the demands of sport competition.
