Women's Ribbed Wool-Blend Tights
stay where you put them
No pinching, no rolling, no slipping. These tights are super warm. I'm 5'5", 135 lbs and I cannot stand anything tight around my waist so I always aim up a size. When I took these out of the package they looked as if they would be tight but they are not. I never had to pull them up or adjust them. I was delighted. I didn't give them 5 stars because I could feel the slight grittiness of the wool weave on my feet within my leather ankle boots, but my feet are super sensitive after a long summer in sandals. It is probably not the tights. These are definitely the best I have found. The charcoal color is really dark, the chocolate like a dark Hershey. Nice

We love our woolen stockings
I purchased 2 pair of these stockings - one for my grand daughter and one for myself. My grand daughter "loves" her stockings. She tried them on at home and refused to take them off they were so warm and comfortable. I am extremely pleased with mine as well. They are well worth the price!
I am also happy to state that all of my prior orders from Vermont have been excellent!

Warmth and Comfort
I have bought these for years. Now I buy them also for my mother (who is 82) and my sister. We are out in the elements almost daily helping our neighbors. These leggings are so warm and have such a comfortable fit that only wool can provide. Leggings have a tendency to slide down these do not! I don't hand wash anything so these are thrown in with the dark clothes and dried in the dryer and come out great. Thanks for carrying this needed clothing.

The Most Wonderful Warm Stockings!
My headline almost "says it all"; I would like to add: sizing is perfect. Very cozy. Creates a nice line under slacks.

I have been buying these for many years now and they are truly unique. I do not know what i would do without them. These do not have a true rubber-band-type elastic waste, but rather a tighter-than-elsewhere ribbing at the waste, which does a perfect job of keeping them up, yet is not restricting or pinching or bulky at the waste, creating a very smooth, flat, even and shapely siluette, excellent for wearing under curvy and fitted knit dresses or if you want to keep warm in low-wasted bottoms, yet maintaining maximum comfort for a long and warm day of wear, where you do not have a feeling of something extra tight at the waste and can forget you even have them on. I wear these from fall into early spring, right until bear-leg weather begins, since i hate nylon pantyhose and simply do not wear them at all, except perhaps on very special occasions (who wants to be voluntarily confined into a synthetic straight-jacket all day long?!). I just wish there was a cotton equivalent of these, with the same non-elastic seemless waste, to maximize inbetween-season comfort. Unfortunately there is not from what i can tell. One hint: make sure you get a large enough size to maximize the high-wasted stay-on ability, which prevents any skin becoming exposed to cold between tops and bottoms. I used to get a small, but then realized that after a few washings/dryings (yes, i do that for convenience, though it's probably best not to) they lose just a bit in length and that creates some gaping in the crotch, but switching to medium solved that problem for me perfectly - now everything easily fills in in just the right places when i pull them up and still no gaping or sagging - these do not have that problem. Also, i am sensitive to itchy wool, but do not have a problem with these. Just overall excellent blend of comfort and warmth that you rarely find in tights. One downside would be that they do occasionally develop holes, but not often enough to make me give them up, plus the holes don't run, so as long as they are not in a visible place you can still keep wearing them. You only need a couple to take you through a season and usually they last for more than one
