    Fabric fringed on both edges

    I'm gathering materials to make my first Kilt and want to check if what I have is usable.

    As much as I'd love to use wool, I don't have enough confidence in the quality that I'll produce in this first attempt, so I opted to go with a less expensive polyviscose fabric.

    I received it today and it appears both edges are fringed and sewn.

    What would you guys suggest is the best way to deal with this?

    Should I hem, cut off the fringe and accept the sewn edge as a first attempt or do you think it pointless to use this fabric?

    Edit: Clearly I was a little too excited to come on here and ask my question without first checking that the question hasn't already been answered!

    A question first.

    When you say P/V do you mean Marton Mills blend?

    Can you post a photo please?
