What to do when you want, say, a pair of sheer tights that won’t break the bank but you also want to shop sustainably? That’s where we get to the two man-made eco-friendly hosiery options I’m going to talk about today: recycled hosiery, and biodegradable hosiery.
There are a number of reasons to consider wearing wool tights or stockings this winter. For one thing, it’s well known that wool is insulating. The naturally wavy shape of the fibers traps a layer of air against your skin, which keeps you nice and warm.
Cotton can be a wonderful fibre for hosiery for a few reasons. It’s soft, it’s durable, and it lets your skin breathe, which may be the difference between your thick winter tights feeling comfortably warm and unpleasantly sweaty.
Welcome to the second installment in my series on hosiery made from natural or recycled fibres, where today we’re focussing on bamboo. One of the most talked-about fibres in eco media, there’s a lot of debate about whether it’s actually all that sustainable.
Today’s article is the first in a series that’s going to show you where you can find hosiery made from less commonly-used fibres. Silk hosiery isn’t just great from a sustainability standpoint. It’s also a soft, breathable fibre which makes it an ideal choice for sensitive skin.
The lingerie blogging community is pretty small, but what’s even rarer is a fashion blog dedicated to just hosiery. I first discovered My Pantyhose Girl some years ago, when I was managing an influencer campaign for some legwear products.
Thinking I wasn’t really going to need it, I left most of my hosiery (and all of my opaque/thermal hosiery) back in the UK when we moved out here. So I was really glad when APM Fashion contacted me and offered to send some bits back in October.
Shiningwaner is an online retailer of Chinese hosiery brand Bonas, the latter of which has been around since 1985 and employs people working on everything from producing the brand’s own yarn through to knitting it into the final product.
