Fringe and Rope Twisters

Fringe and Rope Twisters

A fringe twister is a versatile tool that can take your work to a whole new level when it comes to adding that extra touch of elegance and originality to your hand weaving or knitting projects. These are straightforward yet clever tools that make it simple to make fringes that are uniform and professional-looking.

A twisted fringe protects your fringe from becoming straggly over time, it also provides a professional finish to your handwoven project.

How to use a Fringe Twister

Fringe twisters are used to finish the ends of your hand weaving or knitting projects. Fringe twisters can come in a number of different styles and with different numbers of clips.

Group your warp threads into two or three sections, and clip the end of each bundle into the fringe clips. Turn the handle or crank until the yarn twists back on itself. Tie a knot in the end and let the yarns twist together.

What is the Difference Between the Fringe Twister Styles?

The finish will depend on whether you're using a double or a triple clip. The twisters with four clips allow you to twist to fringe groups at once.
