5K Spiral Yarn
Sourced from mills in the North of Italy, we use a double-covered yarn that has 10 times the spiral count of regular tights. Making them ten times softer to the touch and gentler against the skin.
Our waistband won’t roll, slip or dig in. Choose between two heights: Low, to sit on your hips, or High, to hug your waist
Seamless design and 3D knit
Heist tights are knitted in a single, seamless tube, from toe to toe, using a 3D knit that eliminates unsightly lines and creates an even look to the colour of the tights.
Invisible Toe Seams
Without compromising the strength of the toe area, our toe seams are hidden — tucked under the ridge of the toes, for comfort and finish.
We make The Eighty tights from an Italian double-covered yarn (92% polyamide, 8% elastane,) which gives a warmth and depth that is intrinsically luxurious as well as being perfect for everyday wear.
The waistband uses the same yarn but is knitted on a separate machine designed to make a perfectly seamless band and then hand-sewn onto the body of the tights using a light cotton thread.
We dye the tights Jet Black (using Pantone 19-0303TPX because it gives the richest colour) and label them with a small satin tag.

We do everything we can to make extraordinary tights but luxury tights just aren’t as robust as a pair of jeans so please do take care of them.
If you have the time, the best way to look after your tights is to hand wash them in lukewarm water with a mild detergent but don’t worry if not, simply use a delicate cycle in the washing machine and try to keep them apart from zips and buttons that could snag.
Worrying that the tights will be too long?
Don’t! As long as you get the hip measurements right, you won’t have a problem. Our only recommendation is that our petite customers (4’8 - 5’3) tend to find the low waistband a bit more comfortable.
How to measure your hip width.
Stand with you feet together on a level surface and wrap a measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and bottom (approximately 7-9 inches below your waistline).
We think perfect tights should have a perfect shipping policy to go with them so we are pleased to offer free shipping across Europe and certain worldwide locations.
For our customers in the UK, orders received by 2pm should be with you next day.
For the rest of the EU it may take a little longer but we hope to have your tights with you, fresh from our London warehouse, in 3-4 days. For the rest of the world, expect 5-7 day delivery.
