    howdy all, just found an awesome YSL tie in a fabric that i really love. Not really very easy to find in desirable colors, so I'd like to try to clean it as opposed to returning it.

    Material is 30% wool, 45% polyester, and 25% acrylic.

    Mark appears to be pencil or ink...it doesn't photograph well.

    Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thank you.

    I believe its ink from a ballpoint pen.

    any assistance?

    thanks.

    Your only hope is to send the tie to one of the SF-recommended dry cleaners (e.g. RAVE in Arizona).
