Editors Notes

In 1895, roofer and knitter Franze Falke-Rohen founded his own knitting mill. This family run business would go on through the turmoils of World War One, and expand to a wool and yarn mill in Schmallenberg which would become the company’s headquarters.

In 1948 Falke expanded production from knitted socks to hosiery, making the first nylon hosiery in Germany, and pioneering the production of hosiery on a cotton kitting machine. They’ve since gone on to produce wide menswear and womenswear lines, as well as multiple Red Dot Design winning sportswear.

Falke’s selection of robust and attractive socks and hosiery provide chic and stylish office and casual wear.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely and toasty! I was a bit hesitant when I was buying these due to the price but they have been well worth it, soft and very warm - Would not have survived this winter without them! Only issue is that they have bobbled but this is normal to an extent I suppose - otherwise perfect! 07 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cosy These tights are a great fit and very warm. Bought another pair for my self and treated my mum as well. She is not feeling the cold now. Delivery was very good. 20 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely tights I really like Falke socks and tights .They fit well and feel lovely. I have a number of pairs of woollen Falke socks and my only complaint is that they don't last too long. After 2 years they wear out so not as long lasting as cotton socks 19 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luxury that lasts all winter This will be my third year of buying these fantastic tights. Although they're expensive they do last for all of winter and are lovely and warm. 31 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super soft tights Unlike many others, they are well made, soft and luxurious. A joy to wear. 30 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not cheap but soooo warm! I almost baulked at paying this much for tights, but these have lasted and lasted, great quality and so warm... they look smarter than many wool tights and the wool content is high, hence they really are cosy. The fit too is excellent, I often struggle with tights as the waist is too big and they fall down giving an unsightly line where they fall to, but these seem just right offering a bit of tummy support as well. Just the thing for winter! 16 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and lovely These tights really are warm without sacrificing style; soft muted colour and not too thick. Whats more they last for ages, I know cos my daughter had some two years ago and has only now worn them out. They are right on trend this winter. There are lots of cheaper versions in the shops but these are wool not cotton and are therefore much warmer and have that fine merino look without any synthetic shine. I am thinking of buying them in black for work but the anthracite melange goes with most things so I may go for that colour again, I have had several people asking me where I got them and what make they are. I do hope that this product is continued. 16 January 2012
