Lastofa Forte

Lastofa Forte –
The flat knitted medical compression with merino wool

Lastofa Forte is our new, flat knitted compression quality. It consists of – for compression indispensable – synthetic fibres and skin friendly merino wool. Merino wool is a natural high performance fibre. It cools in summer and warms in winter and allows the skin to breathe due to natural air cushions. The fibres of the merino wool are very robust and feel pleasantly soft on the skin on account of their particularly fine structure.

Lastofa Forte

Our flat knitted highlight.

Lastofa Forte is our new flat knitted compression quality. It consists of a high percentage of skin friendly merino wool and also of high-grade modern function yarn. For example, the microfibre lies in the case of this stocking directly on the skin and ensures enhanced wearing comfort – guaranteed no scratching.
Merino wool is a natural high performance fibre. It cools in summer, warms in winter and allows the skin to breathe due to natural air cushions. On account of its self-cleaning function it is also odour resistant. The fibres of the merino wool are very robust but are at the same time agreeably gentle to the skin on account of their particularly fine structure.

Lastofa Forte accredited the ecolabel
“Öko-Tex Standard 100”

The Öko-Tex Standard 100 is a worldwide uniform testing and certification system for raw, semi-manufactured and finished textile products covering all processing stages.

The tests for harmful substances cover legally banned and regulated substances, chemicals known to be a health risk and parameters for health care.

Allocation of a tested textile product to one of the four Öko-Tex product classes is based on the textile’s use. The more intensive the skin contact of a product is, the stricter the requirements in terms of human ecology. More information:

Ofa Bamberg offers you the best possible quality. The use of skin friendly substances is of course an integral part of our philosophy. Our compression stockings meet the strict guidelines of the eco-label.

we ensure a consistently high quality standard

Since 1991 we have owned one of only 11 measuring systems for compression stockings existing worldwide – the HOSY (Hohensteinsystem) testing equipment for compression products. Ofa was the first German manufacturer to operate the system in house with the aim of conducting regular tests and checks that go beyond the prescribed standard. The equipment tests the compression performance of stockings of any kind or size and is used in product development and quality control.

Care instruction

The right way to wash compression stockings


  • Do not wash inside out!
  • Wash before first use!
  • If possible, wash every day (max. 40°C), at least every second day
  • With commercial mild detergent (particularly suitable for compression stockings is Ofa clean special detergent), don´t use fabric softener
  • Rinse well, but don´t rub or wring
  • Air dry on a towel or in a tumbler dryer (delicates programme), never iron or dry on a radiator


  • Store in dry place, protect against direct sun
  • Avoid stockings with silicone coated grip tops being in contact with solvents, creams and moisturising liquid soap, as the adhesiveness can be badly affected
  • Maintain regular foot care and wear sensible footwear
  • Pilling is normal with textiles and no grounds for complaint
  • Never repair stockings yourself but return the damaged stocking to the specialist dealer the stocking was bought from

Pull-on aids

The slip-in, slip-out system does not make putting on compression stockings and pantyhose an early morning feat of skill but allows you to slip into the stocking and day with speed and ease.
