Prevent Prewash Fraying
submitted by Nancy Sherba
from Threads #133
Before I prewash my woven fabrics, especially fabric that’s likely to fray, I run a wide zigzag stitch along the cut ends. It helps to keep fraying to a minimum and prevents the frayed threads from getting tangled up with other items in the wash. To double the benefit, I use thread that’s old or from spools that are almost empty. Without any extra effort, I effectively purge my thread stash at the same time.
