Product Description

These white or black blank silk ties are all beautifully made in China and sewn with 100% silk thread. We have them made extra long and with a synthetic insert which is an advantage for painting. Three different fabrics to choose from. Better to dry clean rather than wash silk ties. If washed, block until totally dry. Using water based colored resists and free flowing Silk Paints like Dye-Na-Flow or Setasilk, you can just paint them, dry them and iron to heat set both the resist lines and the paint. No washing excess dye out needed, and they come out looking better than new. Great non-toxic project for kids to make for their Dads too! Sorry, no returns on ties.

We recommend dry cleaning silk ties.

Made in: CHINA (CN)

IMPORTANT! - Contrary to what the label says sometimes - DO NOT PREWASH! Dry clean only.

These were the first neck-ties I tried for my silk painting business. They are perfect! The fabric and weight is wonderful and even with submerging them in dye baths they dried beauifully and take my landscapes to a new level! Wynn Creasy

These ties are fabulous! I actually have been able to steam set them then rinse and iron and they have held up for me. It does take a bit of practice and you need to be really mindful of applying the dye very lightly - but I've had success applying two layers of dye and a layer of soy wax. Oh and I also didn't stretch my neck ties I just laid them down on a clean flat surface. After painting the front of the tie I painted the border with a layer of soy wax - that way when I painted the back it didn't bleed to the front. Good luck and enjoy this great product - and have patience :)

I've had killer results with serti sunprinting salt and brush-over shibori on both the Habotai and Charmeuse. Biggest challenge is sewing these wiggle-prone bias-cut B-words back together as smoothly as the manufacturers did. Ironing the detached silk layer onto freezer wrap stretched my first one too much. Wrapping the inner felt in plastic and pinning the silk back onto it to flatten it for painting worked better. Temporary basting along the seam and fold lines with non-stretching thread helped. But after reading Wynn's review I might try just not taking my next one apart at all :)

i was pretty happy with this tie. i had read reviews about how difficult it is to dye wash and keep straight. i can't say that it came out perfect quality to sell but as a gift i thought it looked great. it took the dye beautifully washed and dried fine and just came out slightly wavy in the end but im sure no one will notice except me.

Great for custom orders-I will work on 4 or 5 at one time. I simply lay these out flat on a big table (not stretch) with heavy duty plastic beneath them use silk paint and water based resist do the fronts first. When dry I flip over and continue my design on the back. I have had no problem with leakage from front to back. I have both steam and heat set dyes-good results every time. Best prices for blanks around!

After these get thoroughly wet in dying and setting the ties get a certain torque to them being on the bias and do not tie well or keep lying flat. Wish there were some solution to this problem perhaps a different silk fabric that reacts to moisture evenignly in both directions?

These are the best silk ties on the market. I use the charmeuse paint lots of them and sell them. These are most lovely and luxurious. www.etsy.comshopsilkiness

We tie dyed this tie and it is gorgeous. My husband loves the feel of it though he has not worn it as a tie yet he is still stoking & petting it. I highly recommend this to anyone

The kids and I had great fun painting these for Fathers Day and their dad loves his new ties! but after the effort of taking them apart and sewing them back together and not being able to achieve a nice flat surface over the facing I think I'll go the expensive route next time and make a proper folded tie from a pattern.
