Fringe Twister – Fiber Art Supply Co.

£18.00£40.00

One of my favourite finishes to a woven piece is a luxurious fringe. Fringing by hand can be time consuming and frustrating, and these lovely twisters make the job quicker and more enjoyable.

Made from solid maple with steel fixtures and rubber caps, these are durable, hand-made specialty tools. The 10 end twister is great for larger pieces. I like the 4 end twister to carry with me and work on the go, though it works just as well on larger scale work.

First, choose the number of strands in your fringe and divide them in two groups and clamp each group in a clip.

Next, move the wood bar at the bottom in the clockwise direction, as many times as you choose.

Remove from the clips two at a time and and ply the two straights against each other in an anti-clockwise direction, then tie a knot at the end to secure the fringe.

Some tips:
-For the most even fringe, count the number of ends per strand to ensure consistency.
-When you do the first set of fringe strands, count the number of rotations you use, and use that for all the fringe across the warp.
