How to Use Fray Check

Dritz Fray Check is a seam sealant that prevents fabric from fraying by securing the thread ends. It dries clear and will not discolor or stain fabrics. It is also washable and dry cleanable.





To apply, gently squirt the fray check along the edge of the fabric. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes for drying. Trim off the excess threads.

BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure if this product is strong enough to hold the yarn together. I would think you would have to stabilize it before cutting or else it would unravel. It might work to use a tight zigzag stitch on a sewing machine around the area you want to cut and then cut just inside the stitches. The Fray Check could then be used to provide extra strength on the edges.
