When it comes to hosiery, the thickness of tights can generally range from 5 denier to 100 denier (and even beyond). How is this calculated? Denier relates to the thread count of a pair of tights, or how transparent or opaque a pair of tights are, which also explains their thickness (and thus, warmth).
Our Sheer Tights that come in a range of five shades are measured at 20 denier, sitting on the lower end of the denier scale. This means they're sheer and won't keep you as warm. They're a helpful added layer to protect against wind and cold weather, but will not suffice in extreme cold temperatures.
Our Opaque Tights are 60 denier. These tights are thicker than our Sheer tights, so if you are in the market for warmth, you've come to the right place. Our Opaque tights are also a perfect layer to wear under pants if you're looking for a bit of extra insulation during those cold months.
