How to make a realistic animation of "tying a suit tie" with blender


On wiki-how, there are gifs on each step of “tying a tie” with idealized force/deformation. [link]

My question is: is it possible to generate a realistic animation of “tying a suit tie” with blender (e.g. cloth simulation)? So that by applying different magnitude of force, we get different outcome shape of the tie?
