I’ve seen a few blankets woven with a “ribbon” selvedge: at each side, there are about 10 or so warp threads, then a few warp threads skipped, and then in the middle there is the blanket. At the end of weaving, I assume after wet finishing, the weft floats across the skipped warp are cut, leaving a nice side fringe, and a side ribbon. Much like you can see in this pictures:
Now, my question is: how do you finish the edge of the side fringe so it doesn’t fray? In this picture it looks like it’s machine sewn or something, but I am not sure… is it maybe something that industrial looms can do? How would you do something similar on a floor loom?
(this is me thinking of a blanket with a hundred colour changes… and a way to avoid weaving in all the ends, they would still show)
