Finishing a Piece Woven on the Saffron Pocket Loom with Four Finished Selvedges
When weaving a piece on the Saffron loom, there are two options for set up. You can treat it like any other Mirrix Loom and leave four inches of warp on either end to finish. Or you can weave from comb to comb and create a piece with four finished selvedges as we will show you here. This method makes finishing really easy. One useful trick when weaving from comb to comb is to at some point weave down from the top. The reason for this is it's tricky to get those last rows in near the top comb. Using a thin t tapestry needle works great for this.
Once you have woven all the way from comb to comb, decrease the tension on the loom by turning the top wing-nut. Gently pull the weaving off of each of the combs starting at one corner.
Once the piece has been removed from the loom, sew in the two warp ends on either side of the piece.
Trim the weft ends or sew them back into the weaving as you did with the warp ends. In this case I have just trimmed them.
And you are done. All the selvedges are finished!
