Garment hangers are disclosed which enable more clothes to be dried on a specific length of clothes line than can be dried if the clothes are pegged to the line. The hangers have toothed parts (44, 46) which can be splayed apart to provide a gap into which the clothes line can be slipped. A resiliently flexible bridge (42) joining the parts exerts a restoring force which urges the parts together. The toothed parts (32, 34) can be incorporated into a neck of a hanger between its hook and shoulder bars. Alternatively a loop can be provided for receiving the hook of a conventional garment hanger.
