Rayon or cotton chenille yarns require a different finishing technique than other handwoven articles. When chenille is in loom-state it feels stiff as cardboard. This finishing treatment will make it soft and luxurious.
- Remove your handwoven rayon or cotton chenille scarf from the loom.
- Fix any broken ends, knots or other necessary repairs.
- Make a tightly twisted fringe to finish the edge.
- Using a spray bottle filled with clean water, spray the chenille article until damp.
- Roll the article up and place it in a plastic bag.
- Let the article sit in the bag a few hours, or overnight.
- Remove the article from the bag, and place it your dryer on high heat, gentle cycle.
- Let dry in dryer for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the dryer, and press with a steam iron.
- If any of the fringe has come undone, the ends can be retwisted.
