Tie Interfacing comes in several qualities and it seems that, from time to time, depending on the manufacturer, the quality changes a bit. Fortunately this imported version is quite consistent. Its "softness" allows for a better finish for a "period" look. Measuring approx. 33" wide and is available in white. Note - always happy to mail out samples to you upon request. If this is not soft enough for period ascots check out Lambswool under the Interfacing section.
