Rua for red... These are classic tights rather than leggings and they have been knitted in our fabulous Lalland lambswool, which is supersoft with no itchy feel at all, and plenty of bounce and stretch under tension. Tension is crucial to this design. Going through the changes in needles allows movement from very tight to looser...this gives the stretch, just like in hosiery!
