Every time I get to the end of weaving a project I'm left with the same dilemma… what to do with the loom waste?
I know these as 'thrums' - the short lengths of left-over warp. I can't bear to throw them away so I remove the 30 inch* lengths from the back of the loom in bunches, tie them in a loose knot and put into bags. I've now got a lot of bags!
What do others do with their 'thrums'?
* it's Megado floor loom so there's at least a yard between the fell of the cloth and the back beam rod that can't be woven.
