Taming the Savage Selvage.

June 8, 2013

I wrote this tutorial back in 2008 and thought  that I should share this trick for weaving nice selvages on narrow woven bands, whether inkle or tablet with all of you.  I was shown this method by a good friend and it instantly improved the look of my woven products.

The trick is leaving a loop of weft thread outside the band and not pulling the weft tight until you’ve beat the next shed.   This works with any kind of narrow weave. I used it with card weaving as well.

Here is a series of photos that demonstrates the method.  Please write me if you have any questions.
