Cotton compression stockings are cooler than synthetic. There are also lighter, thinner stockings that are available. If you are wearing thigh high stockings and really only need knee high, the shorter ones will be cooler. Your best resource is probably the medical supplier who fits stockings. They can tell you what is available. The hair pulling thing might actually be trickier.
