Wolford tights are worth the money but once you’ve made that investment it is down to you to keep them looking and feeling fresh wear after wear. We are here to help you know how to wash your Wolford pantyhose and keep these luxury products in top condition.

It goes without saying that tights are one of the most fragile items in your wardrobe along with underwear and delicates. But we still end up throwing them in the wash with everything else! Washing hosiery delicately is the easiest way to keep your tights lasting longer. Despite the highest quality yarns being used in Wolford hosiery, they are no exception, in fact you might want to give them a bit more tender love and care to ensure their longevity.

How to Wash Wolford Tights

Follow these tips on the best way to wash your Wolford tights:


  1. Always check the washing instructions on the product packaging.
  2. We recommend hand washing Wolford tights in delicate detergent and warm water if you have the time.
  3. If not, then get yourself a lingerie or hosiery bag that can go in the washing machine. Put the tights in the bag and wash at a warm temperature, no higher than 30c. If you wash them too hot, they might lose their shape.
  4. To dry your Wolford tights please do not put them in the tumble dryer. They will shrink and they might even tear! The heat will also damage the expensive luxury yarns and decrease their life expectancy. So just hang up your damp Wolford Tights and let them air dry.

Extra Tips On Caring For Your Wolford Tights To Make Them Last Longer

Please follow the washing instructions as listed above and follow the advice on the product packaging as they could all vary slightly. Ensure jewellery is removed before handling to avoid snags, especially if hand washing your Wolford tights. If possible try and store them in a soft pouch within your lingerie drawer so they don't get caught on bra straps or drawer edges. You could always keep the packaging they came in and store them in there. Also, when putting on your Wolford tights, try to do so carefully by rolling the tights slowly from the feet upwards - oh and make sure your toe nails are cut to avoid damaging the tights!
