What are the warmest tights for figure skating?
⛸️We find the warmest tights are a blend of bamboo, nylon and cotton. These account for most of the tights that skaters search for in our store. ⛸️
Why are bamboo tights so popular?
Bamboo fiber used in tights is antimicrobial; thermal regulating; wicks away moisture better than cotton fabrics; is resistant to mold and mildew; is absorbent, fast drying and more comfortable; and is exceptionally soft.
Bamboo cultivation is not stimulated by pesticides nor artificial fertilizers.

Why do figure skaters wear tights over their skates?
That's a great question! Over the boot skating tights cover the leg and entire skate boot. They clip or velcro under the skate boots. We've found that skaters chose these tights for the following reasons:
- To elongate the look of the leg
- To make extensions look better and bigger
- To cover nicks and marks on skates
- To contain a lace which may get lose, thus avoiding tripping
- A matter of personal preference & aesthetics during a performance
Washing 🧺 instructions for skating tights
Yes tights are machine washable in cold water. Drying can be done in a dryer on low heat however, laying tights flat to dry is a great option if they have rhinestone embellishments.
So sort out those tights with bling, they will need more specialized attention.
Why did my skating tights turn pink? 🌸
Yep this can happen, it is usually a sign that bleach made it's way into the wash. Use bleach free detergent to keep your skating tights pink free.
