If you are looking for eco friendly, squat proof, and neutral color leggings, you are on the right page! If you haven’t heard of the brand Wolven Threads, you should definitely check them out. I have written about them in this blog post, or you can visit their Wolven Home Page Link.
They have a variety of beautiful pattern leggings, but in this post I’m going to focus on their Basics collection of leggings, which have an amazing design, shape and some awesome solid colors.
Basics Pocket Legging Collection Features
Product: Wolven Threads – Onyx Pocket Legging
Where to Buy: Wolven Threads
Colors Available: Indigo, Wolf Grey, Onyx, Cayenne, and Turmeric (pictured from left to right above)
Available Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL
My Rating: 9/10
The picture on the right is the Onyx Pocket Legging which is part of Wolven Thread’s basic legging features. All of their Basics collection focus on providing what any basic legging should have which is:
- super soft breathable material
- high waistband
- deep side pockets
- moisture wicking
Oh, and I cannot forget to mention one of the most important features of their leggings:
- It’s 84% made out of recycled plastic bottles & 16% spandex!!
Yep, I also didn’t recently know that plastic bottles could turn out to become yoga leggings, how awesome is that?
Not Only For Your Yoga Class
Not only are these suitable for yoga class, but they are perfect for dance classes, spin classes, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), hiking, and many other sporty activities. If you need them to be more close-fitting for whatever activity you will do, you better order one size down. Do watch out, although these leggings are moisture wicking, they are a little thicker than usual, so they are not so great for hot yoga class. Otherwise, I guess this makes them nice for winter as well!
Apart from obviously wearing them for your daily exercises, these pocket leggings are charming to go out and about. No matter what size or shape, they accentuate our shapes and curves. You can throw on a t-shirt, or wear a lovely crop top. Also, on their website they make some suggestions of what you can pair these leggings with. The pocket on the sides are also incredible for fitting our phones (and yes I am talking about our new smart phones that can sometimes be the size of a brick these days).
May Be Pricey, But High Quality
I get it, these leggings definitely do seem pricey. A few years ago, I would have probably chosen the cheap ones at Walmart. But the truth is that unfortunately cheaper leggings don’t last long due to poor quality. And what happens to these leggings? They end up being another waste in our environment. Not only are these pocket leggings made with quality materials that are also taking a burden out of our environment (recycled plastic bottles), but they also last a long time – so you don’t need to think about replacing them anytime soon. Due to the material of these leggings, they also don’t pill (in other words, they don’t form those little fuzzy balls).
As their basic pocket collection of leggings are dyed with lively colors, they are guaranteed to not be see through. Honestly, one of the worst things about buying leggings is the fear of the leggings being slightly see through, as we don’t want anyone to see behind so “clearly”. By the way, you also don’t have to worry about the color of your leggings fading when washing!
Important FAQs To Know
See below some important FAQ you should consider before buying their lovely leggings.
- How do I know which size will fit me best?When taking measurements, you should measure:
- waist – the narrowest part
- hips – measure about 2-3 inches below the belly button, or also where your low rise jeans begin
- inseam – measure from the crotch until where your pants end (you can do this by taking one of your best fitting pants, folding my half lengthwise, and measure as mentioned)
Their website also had a page dedicated to the sizes both in U.S. and internationally.
- How do I wash these leggings?
As these leggings are anti-microbial, you can actually wear them multiple times, and they won’t smell bad. Not only is this good for the leggings, but also for the environment.They strongly recommend that you hand wash them. If you do wash them in the machine, make sure to wash them cold, and use liquid detergent, and DO NOT use the dryer to dry them. Use a microfiber filter wash bag, in order to avoid fiber/micro-plastics to enter the waste water and into our oceans (as unfortunately a lot of things that we buy shed these micro-fibers).
- Is shipping free?If you live in the U.S., shipping is free on orders over USD$49, and if you are outside the U.S., shipping is free on orders over USD$99. If you are placing an order internationally, do be careful and be aware if your country charges any duties or taxes, as that is not included in the price.
- What are my payment options?Fortunately, there are many ways to pay, you can use any major credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, and as well as Klarna (which is a program in which you can pay in 4 interest-free installments)
