The 8/2 Orlon used for this kit is machine washable and resists fraying, so the fringe will look great wash after wash. We doubled the yarn in both the warp and the weft to give it a little extra thickness, and sett it at 15 doubled ends per inch. The structure is a combination of twill and reverse twill. As you weave, you will use a floating selvedge to extend each weft pick to allow length for the fringe. Then, before advancing the warp, you will cut and tie the weft fringe.
