In this article, we want to explain the practical solutions for keeping the carpet fringe safe.
Remedy Number One: Tie the carpet fringe
The first remedy that comes to our mind to keep the carpet fringe safe is to tie it. There are different types of carpet fringe knots and it is divided into three categories: two knots, pea knot and chain knot.
In the two-knot method, divide all the carpet fringe into groups of 2 to 5. Hold a bunch of fringe with your left hand and hold the weft yarn with your index finger and thumb. Then, twist the bunch of fringe twice around the middle finger, forefinger and thumb. Take out the first bunch of 2 to 5 fringe and take the rest of the yarn with your right hand and tie it.
In this method, like the previous method, divide the fringe into groups of 2 to 5, then twist each group around itself and form a knot. This creates a pea-knot at the beginning of the fringe. Note that for the pea-knot method, the fringe should be long enough. If you want to use this method for old carpets, it is better to make them longer and tie the fringe with the help of yarn.
In the chain-knot method, like the previous two methods, it is better to have long carpet fringe. The chain-knot method is in a way that in addition to protecting the carpet, it also makes it beautiful. This method is a combination of two methods: pea-knot and simple-knot method.
First you have to make a pea knot or two knots and then continue to tie the fringe at a distance of 2 cm from the pea knot. Tie the fringe again at a distance of 2 cm from the side fringe. In the end, all the carpet fringe are formed like chains.
Remedy Number Two: Use Tape
Wide clear Tapes are one of the simplest methods used to care carpet fringe. Before applying the tape to the carpet fringe, it is better to first arrange them, then apply the tape carefully and smoothly on the fringe. Despite being simple, tape may damage the carpet fringe when it is removed.
Remedy Number Three: Use Cover Sheet
Another way to protect the carpet fringe is to use a cover. No clear tape is used in making the covers and thanks to them, the carpet fringe stays firmly on the edges of the carpet.
The cover prevents the carpets from rotting and allows air to flow through the fringe. But you should consider changing the fringe cover at least once in a while.
