How to Wash Wolford Tights To Make Sure They Last
Wolford tights are a great investment, especially during the colder months when tights become a go-to wardrobe item for many. They may be built to last but knowing how to care for your Wolford tights is essential if you are going to keep these luxury items in top condition. Tights are one of the most fragile items in your wardrobe, alongside other underwear and delicates, but we often don't care for hosiery in the same way we might care for lace underwear - even though it's the key to longlasting wear! There are a few options when it comes to hosiery washing; 1. Hand-wash with a very gentle soap in warm water - satisfying but possibly time-consuming. 2. Pop them in a lingerie or hosiery bag and into a not too hot machine wash, this option is a great way for helping hosiery to keep its shape. Once washed, hang or dry flat so they don’t shrink, tear or go misshapen. The one golden rule? Under no circumstances should you put Wolford tights in the tumble dryer! They will very likely shrink or tear and the heat could damage the yarns, decreasing their life expectancy. Ultimately, take good care of your Wolford Tights and they'll look packet new every time you wear them.

Wolford does not cut corners when it comes to their high-quality hosiery styles. Using circular knitting machines, with shaping and fit to take into account anywhere that the body bends for that second-skin feel. Once knitted Wolford Tights go into an oven on metal legs that shock the fibres, keeping them from overstretching and the colour from fading. This also helps to form the tights securely into the correct shape for legs. Each pair will go through a minimum of 16 construction steps and are inspected each step of the way before packaging. Also, most tights use oval gussets, whereas Wolford tights use cotton, diamond-shaped gussets which can only be sewn by hand. The complete process takes seven days, to make just one pair. Wolford hosiery is always one step ahead of the fashion game, focusing on luxury craftsmanship and a keen eye for current trends, which gives this luxury brand their edge. Creating hosiery using innovative designs and new technology has paved the way for famous collaborations with creatives such as Photographer Helmut Newton and Chanel’s Director Karl Lagerfeld. Wolford tights may be expensive, but after knowing what goes into making just one pair, its easy to see why! So with all this extra attention to detail- are these expensive tights worth the money? If you are into fashion tights, then they most certainly are. No-one else pushes style and design boundires like Wolford when it comes to fashion.
