Handmade fringe twister $16
This is a great tool to finish the fringe so it won't get tangled or fray in the wash. They are two alligator clips that hold the two clumps of yarn. You lay your garment over a table with a weight, like a book to hold it on top of the table. Take your small amount of fringe and divide the amount in half...half going in each clip. Turn clockwise until it is well twisted...you can count to get the same on each set of fringe. I like to get it almost kinky. Then move other fabric and fringes out of the way and take your twister hanging down off the table and give it a good twist the other direction. give it lots of twist in this direction then knot the end. It will loosen up a bit, that's why I give it lots of twist.
