Our grenadine garza Piccola silk is woven in Italy with 100% silk and is a slightly larger weave than our garza Fina. Grenadines have a loose weave that naturally makes beautiful full sized four-in-hand knots. We do not advise using a Windsor knot with grenadine silk as the knot will tend to be very large. A half-Windsor with a tight knot could work but this can shorten the tie's life so we do not suggest it.
Please note that due to the loose weave grenadines can stretch over time. For some gentlemen there is no stretch; for others one inch, or with longer ties over 60 inches there can at times be 2 inches or more.
Our grenadines are artisanally woven and can have small variations in color and texture from roll to roll. To see the texture and color of our grenadine silk you can order swatch sets here: Swatch Sets
4-fold constructions work well with grenadines and is our standard grenadine construction, there is no extra charge. 6-fold constructions are a nice luxury for extra drape and an elegant construction the extra charge is $40.
We have the largest collection of grenadines in the world and it will be our pleasure to answer your questions.
