Reviewed: Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights

Online hosiery retailer Leglicious recently sent us some tights to trial and review.

Our first review will be of the Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights.

Leglicious describe these tights as "plain knit and beautifully soft, these cotton, wool and silk blend tights are sure to keep away the winter chill."


The Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights are packaged very simply. They are enclosed in a card clasp, which has a hook for retail display purposes.

Materials and features

The Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights are made from an interesting yarn mix that has 43% Polyamide, 38% Cotton, 11% Wool, 5% Silk and 3% Elastane.

They feel smooth, soft and warm. These are tights for cool days.

The brief/body is nice and deep and measures 27cm from the top of the waistband to the cotton gusset.

Seams are flat and expertly finished. The XL has a conventional single seam rear, and no rear comfort panel.

Toes are rounded and have no visible reinforcement.

The waistband is 3cm wide.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience

The Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights are available in four sizes:

  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Extra Large

This is review is based on the Extra Large (XL) size.

We have reviewed lots of Oroblu tights at Hosiery For Men, and have found that from a size perspective they work well for men. I suspect that is the experience of readers of this blog as well.

Leglicious has a good selection of Orobu tights.

The Tessie tights have a high level of opacity. Coverage is dense, but as with most wool and cotton tights the knit of the yarn allows them to be breathable.

They are really stretchy. I found the fit on the leg to be excellent, with no wrinkling or bunching.

The brief/body stretched comfortably above the hips and waist.

The overall wearing experience was excellent. The Tessie tights feel great (the silk content in the yarn might be a factor in that), and comfort level is high.

Colour range

Although the Oroblu website indicates that the Tessie Cotton Wool Tights are available in other shades including Blu Artico and Grigio, at Leglicious they are available in Black only.

Price and availability

The Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights are available at Leglicious for £16.00.


Firstly thanks to Leglicious for giving us the opportunity to trial the Oroblu Tessie Cotton Wool Tights.

Leglicious are committed too providing a good service to male customers. In our profile of the business, which we published in January, managing director Nicola Forkes, said that male customers are welcome: "They can expect to receive exactly the same service, advice and support as any customer."

The Tessie Cotton Wool Tights reflect Oroblu's reputation for quality. I found them a really comfortable wear with a good fit. As wool and cotton tights they are designed for warm weather, but they are also breathable so your legs won't overheat.
