Density of material
In this paragraph, we are going to talk about the density of tights. You have probably noticed inscriptions on the package of hosiery products such as 20 DEN, 40 DEN and so on. Have you ever thought what these numbers mean? This is the density of the material. The density of these products directly depends on the thickness of the thread:
- 8, 10, 12 den- ultra-light, transparent, thinnest tights that are in perfect harmony with evening dresses. They are invisible on the legs but are still a significant element of the outfit.
- 15 den – products for every day, suitable for the summer season.
- 40 den – versatile, comfortable, practical products that will be appropriate on a cool summer evening and early spring, outdoors and indoors.
- Stockings and tights with indicators 50, 70, 80 dens are created for the off-season.

It is generally accepted that the most durable tights are products with the maximum density. Indeed, thicker fabrics are more wear-resistant, resistant to washing and chemical powders. On the contrary, the thin, weightless fabric looks advantageous, but are not as durable.
What are tights made of?
The main thread in almost all tights is polyamide. Currently, in the textile industry, polyamide prevails over natural fibres not only due to cheaper production but also due to its positive consumer properties: strength and durability; softness and lightweight; crease resistance and smooth surface; colourfastness.
This is a yarn made from many original polyamide threads, each of which is 2 times thinner than silk and 5 times thinner than human hair. This gives additional benefits, including softness, velvety, comfort, less pulls, keep warm at high density.
The second essential element in the production of tights is elastin. These are polyurethane fibres. Elastin is often called lycra. Almost all high-quality hosiery products have elastin in their composition. It improves the elasticity; long-term preservation of shape; resistance to sweat, fats, cosmetics.
