If you have a specific outfit, costume, or fabric you are trying to match with one of We Love Colors' colors there are several ways you can find the best color to meet your need.
- Check out our Color Guide. There you can see our best online color representation. In our Color Guide, you can filter by color family to see our colors grouped by similar colors using the drop down menu in the upper right.
- You can try contacting us and describe the color you need with an example of a commonly known brand, character, or other pop cultural reference that we can search online to help us best recommend which color will be the closest possible match.
- Send us a photo or image. If you are taking a photo please try using natural light to avoid variations on the color. After taking the photo view it on your computer / phone to see if the color is accurate. If you see any variation on your screen you can describe it when sending your image, so we can use all available information to best help.
- Send us a physical sample of your target color to us via postal mail. This will be the most accurate option as we can compare our color with actual garments. This option is available if you can wait a little longer to receive your items.
- Buy a color ring. They include swatches of all our colors and can be found here. Our color rings are made with one style of fabric, which may be different than the style you order.
Slight variations can occur between styles. At We Love Colors we have over 80 different styles that are composed of nylon or nylon / spandex. While we do all our own textile coloration, some factors can influence the final color between styles even if they are included in the same dye batch. When preparing your order for shipment our team visually checks that we are sending you minimal variation (if any) between styles.
We do our best to represent our colors well online. If you received a color that does not work for you there are several things we can do to help depending on your individual situation. It may be best if you contact us directly with more information about what you need. Or if you prefer, you can return the item that did not work for you. If you can include an example of the target color you are looking in the return package we will be happy to visually match our closest color for you.
After the coloration process we use what is called a dye fixative agent to help keep colors from bleeding / fading on colors that require it. Each color will have different properties with respect to bleeding and fading over time as it is characteristic of the dyes used.
Some of our colors will have more risk of bleeding. You will want to use extra care with Scarlet Red, Turquoise, Neon Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Green, and Kelly Green. For best results follow our care instructions. If you do not wash separately and experience staining on other clothes, try washing the stained clothes over again. Our dyes are meant for nylon or nylon / spandex, and likely will wash out of garments of other fibers (cotton, polyester, etc).
Our Neon Yellow, Neon Pink, and Neon Orange including our Splash Colors with those same neon colors (#7001, #7205, #7214, and #7411) will glow under a black light.
Yes, because we do all our own textile dyeing, we are able to offer all of our 50+ colors in all of the various styles we offer.
Our size charts have evolved over years of feedback, and we are constantly trying to improve them further with your feedback. Body types are varying though so a simple height / weight chart does not always get the best fit, especially when going into plus sizes. Thankfully, with hosiery there usually is a lot of stretch allowing to fit a greater range of sizes.
We are working on improving our online tools for finding the best fit, please add your email address to our mailing list to be informed of updates. Also, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to help you find the right size based on our experience.
We have several different manufacturers that we work with to make our garments. When improving the design of our garments it requires us to work within each vendors machinery / capabilities. This causes our sizing to not be exactly the same between styles. Be sure to read each product's size chart before ordering.
Be sure to try them on. Some of our styles appear very small but because they are very stretchy when you put them on they will fit well. Still don't fit? No worries you can still return them. Please contact us directly to see if we have a suggested alternative size or style. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve. We have an excellent return policy and you may return or exchange the garments that have been tried on (not worn / soiled condition).
For best results hand wash separately in lukewarm water and hang dry.
For machine washing use cold water and wash separately or with like colors and hang dry. Using a mesh laundry bag will increase life of garment.
Denier is a term used for hosiery to describe thickness. The higher the denier the thicker the hosiery item. Below 40 denier is considered to be sheer, while 40 denier and above is considered to be opaque.

We mix powder dyes together to get each of our colors. Sometimes a color will take only one color dye, while other colors require up to three hues blended together.
From there the garments are placed into a dye machine (which can be thought of as a very high temperature washing machine) using water and sometimes other dyeing chemicals depending on the color, then mixed / heated and held at high temperature to allow the color to apply to each garment in the dye bath.
All our dyes and dye chemicals are non-toxic.
In the 16+ years we have been in business, we have not had any single complaint about our items causing any skin or other sensitivity issues.
We source by first looking for manufactures within the United States, and when one cannot be found or worked with for a specific style we do look overseas. We require that all manufacturers allow a representative from We Love Colors to visit their facilities, and we do visit them. We avoid purchasing indirectly from distributors.
In 2018, approximately 63% our dollars inventory purchases came from items made in the USA.
One of our founders, Richard, had a very special talent for making colors. Richard went straight from high school to a dye house and learned the art of color matching from textile dyes to any fabric he was given. He develop this skill over a 30+ year career to the point he could blend dyes together by eye to get your exact color. From his craft We Love Colors has been built.
In 2002, he teamed up with his son Craig who had recently graduated college and had experience with e-commerce. Craig did some market research, which gave the insight and direction to expand the color range and develop the product line towards hosiery and dancewear.
With love, Richard's craft, and his son Craig's imagination, We Love Colors was built.

Richard is one our founders, that in addition to being an expert at textile dyeing, he also was an imaginative unique lovable person. Socially he was somewhat awkward and introverted, but when you got him to open up he would make you roll on the floor laughing with his quirky sense of humor and interesting stories. Richard passed away in 2011, leaving his legacy and life long work of producing colors with us through We Love Colors.
