Floating Selvedge

This shadow weave project will need a floating selvedge to help keep the edges tidy. Put one on each side. I am hanging them off the back beam with a weight. I am using the same threads as the warp, but some people use fishing line..... use what ever works for you.

These threads are sleyed through the reed but do not go through a heddle. As you weave, you will go over the floating thread as you enter the shed and go under the floating thread as you exit the shed.

I find my husbands clips from his garage are just the right weight! Thanks Hubby!!
