Using HikersWool to prevent blisters
- Stop immediately if you feel a hot spot and apply HikersWool as directed - don't wait until the blister forms.
- Apply a generous amount directly to the tender area then replace sock and footwear. Depending on the location of your hotspot/blister you may not need to completely remove your sock.
- If the problem is in your toe area, remove your sock and wrap the wool around the affected area.
- HikersWool will bind itself into the sock over the course of the day, this is normal. So as long as your sock stays in place, HikersWool will too. You can easily add more or replace if needed.
HikersWool will not form lumps or roll into a ball making it comfortable even for long journeys. Once you have used it a few times you will be able to judge the right amount needed for your feet.
HikersWool is not medicated and should not be used on broken skin.
