July 2020 Newsletter – Back to the modern world

      After several months of staying at home for most of the time, we finally went for a short break and stayed in a yurt.  The place is so rural that there is almost no cellular network.  This mean no Internet, no phone calls, and no disturbance.  We soaked ourselves in the hot tube under the starry night; watched the fire burn inside the fireplace and made our minds blank.  It was rejuvenating before we were back to the fast-paced modern world again.  

Recap

      Last month’s review included tights in different deniers.  The Mystique 20 from KUNERT were the best tights I have reviewed so far within the Brand.  The Falke Seidenglatt 80 were also the best among the range, which I highly recommend.  Lastly, The Wolford Satin Touch 20 Comfort Tights comes with an extra wide waistband.  It is an upgraded version of the Satin Touch 20 Tights.  If you missed any of the reviews, you can read them at your own time from the links below:

      I have also updated the review for Edelweiss 20 Tights from Wolford.  I originally mistaken it as Individual 20 tights due to the naming on the front cover.  The confusion is now clear and I have rewritten the entire article.  Feel free to experience the difference from the link below:

Review: Wolford Edelweiss 20 Tights

Sale Sale Sale!

      It is again the period of end-of-season sale.  This time, it is more important however, as we all have been hit hard by the pandemic.  If you are financially capable, it is a great opportunity now to support your local hosiery makers, especially the brands you love.  If you are on a budget, it is still a good time to buy some necessary ones while they are on sale, and allocate the saved money for something more important.  I usually share some of the great deals I see on my Facebook Page, which you can find it here.

Forecast

      I am down to my last couple pairs.  I have ordered more but they are very likely to be delayed due to the backlog at N.Z. Post.  Hence depending on the circumstances, I may have to reduce the number of reviews for the coming couple months.

P.S.  Below is the yurt we stayed during our break.  The cover photo is a view from the yurt.
