Are knit ties really made on the same machine as socks?

I have heard this is the case. The machine is much cheaper than the computer weaver (up to 100,000 USD for one), but most tie factories (at least here in China) do not have this machine.

If this has already been discussed, I apologize.

Which is probably why knit ties aren't as popular as regular ties.
