    What is the best way to tuck in all the loose stings on the back side of this blanket? I tried weaving it under, but some of the pieces I wove and then cut are unraveling – which won’t look so very good on the underside.. I don’t all my hard work to unravel. Is there something I should buy to dip the ends into to prevent the fraying? Thanks

      I know … those ends are a pain! I ended up using a tapestry needle to weave each one in. Yes … tedious 🙁
