        I just finished weaving a chenille scarf with a rayon ribbon supplementary warp.  My question is the best way to finish the fringe.  I have tried twisting fringe in the past and it always worms.  So I made a sample (attached) and after washing and drying (low heat in the drier) I cut the ravel back and left the fringe short. Will this hold up over time?B140EFF7-0C1B-4026-9CD3-51938153ED00BCC8EAA5-14C6-40E7-94B9-0DE6AE161C3C

          Hi Diane,

          I found this article on the Knowledge Base about fringe twisting for chenille yarn. Hope this helps!

            IMHO – those fringes won’t be stable.  I have twisted them on chenille scarves and put a drop of FreyChek at the tip of the fringe.  It feels weird but it has prevented the chenille fringe from worming.  Not the perfect, soft solution.  Have you searched the JST Knowledge Base for chenille.  Jane has 3 separate articles about chenille there – it might help.  Just look under “Weaving with special yarns“ or search for chenille.  The final piece looks like it will be stunning!  Let us know what you decide.
