the scarves I use are from Dharma trading and the hem issue seems to be the luck of the draw. I "quality control" check them on the final ironing and some are fine and some have only a few stitches that have come apart, and the worst have a 2 -4" gap, so I set those aside and fix them while I am watching tv or booth sitting.

Does anyone have a supplier with hems that stay intact they would be willing to share? I have been using Exotic Silks. Is there a better solution than blank scarves to avoid this problem? Other than hand-rolling the hems myself! The scarves would then have to be $500.00 at least!
