Italian term or phrase: rete e microrete
Talking about tights/pantyhose. I've found micronet for microrete, but I've never heard this term used before. Is it correct? And what about rete? Would this be fishnet?? Thanks for any help

if talking of the type of knit/number of threads the word "Denier" is used e.g. 70denier would be opaque, the lower the number the lighter and more sheer or luxury
