I'm thinking of doing Rey. I have heard people mention "cotton gauze" for the arm wraps, but exactly what kind? I'm confused. Are we talking self adhesive or not? Or are they more like Ace bandages? Or are they something in-between? And if they are self adhesive, how do people store them between troops so they stay sticky and don't get tangled up? Also what size width is recommended and how many rolls per arm? What specific US gauze brands or fabrics have people used?

I don't know why this confuses me so much but any help would be appreciated.

Hi there!
The screen used ones are cotton crepe bandages from Boots, a pharmacy in the uk.

Similar styles would probably be available! Not self adhesive though, get fabric bandages and look for ‘cotton crepe’, either just wrap them every time or they can be sewn to a compression sleeve so it’s easier for each troop, hope this helps! Very Happy
