The Cotton frame knitting machine
Handmade Woven and Foulard silk ties
Knitted silk ties
Silk, Cashmere, lambs wool or various blends of silk and wool can be used for knitted ties. The finest ties are knitted on a Cotton Frame invented by William Cotton in 1864 and known as the Bentley machine. The silk is prepared by twisting 4 threads of silk together and then twisting 8 lots of the 4 threads giving a total of 32 threads, which gives the tie a tightly woven luxurious feel.
