Linen is an attractive fabric that requires the utmost care. A common misconception is that linen can only be dry cleaned, but that is not so! They are much stronger and smoother than cotton or polyester and there are only a few things to know for your linen ties to last a long time:
1. Linen is always best washed by the hand or in a washing machine than from dry cleaning.
2. Wash in lukewarm or cold water, and preferably soft, water with a gentle detergent.
3. Good news! Machine drying is OK! Just be sure to use a cooler temperature and to remove your tie from the dryer when it's a bit damp to prevent any awkward stiffness and cracking. Lay flat or hang to completely dry.
4. Linen tends to wrinkle easily, especially when it's fresh out of the wash, so ironing your linen neckwear is important. Be sure to iron your linen while it's still damp or with steam on medium-hot. White linen should be ironed on both sides, whereas dark linen should only be ironed on the wrong side.Linen ties
