I have had some pairs for several years and they wash and last beautifully.Though i am quite impressed by the M&S Velvet Deluxe ones, that i buy for my 12 year old, as they are also wearing and washing really well.They are much nicer than the cashmere mix ones that i bought for me that laddered on the first wear and feel very rough on.
I've only bought them when at 50% off and they are v good but there is no way on earth I could ever bring myself to pay more than 15 pounds on a pair of tights and even at half price, they are fiendishly expensive. The M&S Autograph ones are good and actually fit me better than Wolford as even the small in Wolford is pretty big.
I think they are worth the money. The fit is very good and they wash well. The dyes they use are very high quality so you get an even colour without the tights having to be really thick. They do deniers, colours and styles which are not available in the chain stores. Having said all that if you are the kind of person who puts their fingers through their tights or always seems to be laddering them, then Wolford are not for you. They are good quality but not guaranteed to last! If you have pets that jump up on you or little children who cling to your legs than I would not bother (unless buying for a special occasion). Falke are also good if you can't get the colour you want in Wolford. I have also had the M&S Autograph opaques and they are pretty good as a cheaper alternative. I usually buy my Wolford & Falke tights on 3 for 2 promotions in local department stores. There are plenty of websites selling them too and they have offers from time to time. Get a pair for a special 'do' or ask Santa for some and see how you get on! But I am a hosiery snob so I am biased!
if youve neither worn em,try em using the best yarn they wash well,never ladder and last forever. the designs are everchanging and amazing from dots to tiger orints,save money on a dress cos in wolfords everyone looking at your legs. keep an eye on tkmaxx have some fab hoisery bargins incuding woolfords
