Non-linen squares really should never be folded. Doing so would be immoral if not actually criminal.

please indulge me, and give an analogy as to the degree of immorality, so i may best understand the egregious error at hand.

It just comes down to working appropriately with the material at hand. It makes sense to fold linen because it is sharp, crisp, and holds itself up. Silk, in contrast, is soft and floppy. Folding it works against its nature--and it shows. It will never look sharp and rigid, so the folds never look nice.

Gotta agree with this. Silk looks weird folded, and when I started wearing a hank I remember I would iron a silk one into a TV fold so it would hold its shape. It hurts to see old pics now. Guys, don't do that. Ever. tounge.gif

 

That said, if you seek that kind of floppiness, then I guess do it...

You helpfully provide a negative example of the utility of hard-and-fast rules. One need only look at Phat Guido for an example of a short man who successfully wears cuffs.

Has it not occurred to you that the very quality you deride might be sought by others?
