What is denier? Denier, also referred to as den, measures the thickness of tights. The lower the denier, the thinner and more sheer the tights will be. We offer a range of products from 20 den to 200 den, you can filter on denier when shopping. Even though we offer tights of the best quality, higher denier and thus more opaque pairs of tights are more durable than more sheer ones. Below we give you some examples of all different deniers we’re offering, and if you want the compete guide to our basic black tights instead, read more here.
Matte or shiny?
Sometimes our customers ask whether our tights are matte or shiny. When it comes to tights made from recycled material there is no option, the yarn only comes with one surface. It’s matte with a hint of shine, however your dress will still not get stuck halfway up your butt!
70 den is still semi-opaque. We have a few, for instance Alma Tights, with a nice ribbed pattern perfect for work or to dress up for an evening out.
