Wye Leggings in a New Improved Fit and Fabric!
Our fab leggings in an awesome Green.
Athleisure wear but make it ethical and sustainable! These full length leggings have a beautiful matte texture and are so thick and soft! High waisted with a thick waistband panel, gusseted crotch for comfort, performance and movement.
The waistband/hip/thigh have been tightened slightly following your feedback, so that they stay up even better when wearing/running/squatting! Your normal size will therefore now give a more supportive, compressive fit. If you're after a looser more relaxed fit then size up.
We've switched the fabric from bamboo to Tencel as while bamboo itself is very environmentally friendly, the process of turning it into yarn is very chemically intensive so we wanted to step away from using it. Tencel is a very similar fabric but made in a circular system that recycles more than 99% of all chemicals and water used. Fibres are produced from the sustainably sourced natural raw material eucalyptus wood - which like bamboo uses little land and water, and doesn't need pesticides. It has a soft feel on the skin as well as strength and efficient moisture absorption.
64% Tencel, 12% Elastane, 24% Organic Cotton Mix

I really like these leggings, a very unusual colour too. They're super comfy. Only thing I'd say is theyre a bit thinner than I prefer. Bamboo leggings are much thicker so I don't know if tencel can be made thicker?! :)
Thanks so much for leaving us a review! I'm sorry to hear you're finding the leggings to be too thin but glad they're comfortable at least! I'm happy to hear you like the colour too and will pass your feedback on to our design team as thicker leggings is perhaps something they'll be able to look in to!
Lovely material. Well made
I already own a few pairs of leggings and those are also just superb!
In comparison, I think the Wye leggings in black have a slight different feel to the fabric but other than that they fit like a dream!
The colour is funky and the fabric feels soft and smooth - it reminds me of the Riddler costume in Batman ♡
These are really comfy, bright leggings. I have other designs in a S (I'm a 12 in bottoms, 5ft 10, usually I buy a S32 in dungarees or a waist 30 from Lucy and Yak) but I bought these in an M and they're so much comfier, the others feel much tighter in comparison. Length is good too.
Just a tip if you're a similar size.
Absolutely in love with the color and they are very comfy. Unfortunately they ripped during my first wear. I'm sure it's because I ordered a size smaller than my actual size which stretched them to the point where they ripped. I always do this with the leggings I wear for exercise to stop them from slipping down from my comparatively small waist and other leggings have held up fine over time. I guess there is a trade-off in this fabric regarding robustness vs softness, so it's just not made for me and my stretchiness needs. Sad about the nicely coloured leggings but I guess I'll have to stick to other fabrics.
I'm so sorry to hear that this has happened to your leggings. If it's not too much trouble, could you send over a photo of the fault? Also, could you just pop your order number over too?
Then I can look into this for you!
