I want to make my husband some ties but I am not sure what to use for the stabilizer. I have read that it is a wool interfacing but have yet to find anything like what I have found inside RM ties.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Armo-Rite was the trade name of the tie-interfacing available in the US, however they quit making it about 2 yrs ago (I think, might've been 3 yrs ago).
Greenberg and Hammer in NYC has lambswool interlining which I believe would be suitable - however if I were making ties I'd call them and ask before ordering if indeed it's an acceptable substitute for Armo-rite.
Just google Greenberg and Hammer and you'll get a website and a phone # for contact info.

ah, edit to add, I just remembered that I've seen that someone was continuing to package up precut armo-rite for tie interfacing only, so googled, looking for it, and came across this instead.
Tie interfacing at teh Sewing Place. The Sewing Place is a really good reputable vendor.

Sometimes it is simply called "tie interfacing". Just like the tie fabric the interfacing will need to be cut on the bias so you will need to purchase enough yardage to do that. You can also buy ties at the thrift store for around $1 and take out the interfacing. It's pre-cut just right for a tie! The interfacing can be handwashed.

There are two things I would do to find the interfacing Armo-Rite.

1. I would contact Peggy Sagers at www.silhouettepatterns.com/
She used to sell it on her website for use in making jacket sleeve heads and might still have some. There is an email on that site and she is very nice.

2. Scrounge some of the thrift stores for old ties and remove the Armo-Rite from those and reuse it.

Ody is correct, you can get tie interfacing from Silhouettes patterns. I attended a class with Peggy recently, and I believe she said she is the only source for *authentic* tie interfacing in the country. Here is a link to her Notions page.

I have made ties before. One of my favorites was the 7-fold tie by Birch Street. If you are, by chance, using this tie pattern you should read my review. David Coffin made some comments about tie interfacing that is something to consider.

Here is a link. Sorry - I deleted the pictures because of broken links.

What a cool and practical solution!

I have contacted her. Thank you for the information. I have went to the thrift stores but most ties I have found are very worn and the interfacing is not in the best of shape. If I could find ties not so worn I would get them. Numerouse uses of ties wears the interfacing out.
