Selvage (Slack or Wavy)

Selvage (Slack or Wavy) — This is the result of the edge of the fabric being longer than the center, causing it to wave or pucker when laid on the cutting table. This can result from mishandling where the selvage is stretched or from uneven wetting-out during sanforization.
