What is the difference between the fina and the piccola weave?

They look the same to me.

David can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the piccola is a slightly looser weave. They are however very similar.

according to the hober website the piccola is,

"A slightly larger weave than our Grenadine Garza Fina"

i havent looked close yet, but they do seem almost the same. i only chose different weaves due to the black being out of stock in the fina weave. needless to say, i am quite happy with both of them.

When choosing the width of the tie, do I specify the widest part of the tie (1.5" from the bottom) or another part of the tie?

Stitches & Kueller: very nice. I will have to try untipped on my next grenadines.

Burton, you turned that around very quickly!
