Default Is fold wear repairable

Hi all,

Is fold wear that hasn't led to holes or a broken foundation reweaveable?

Thanks,

Ken

More explanation needed. What do you mean by fold wear ? Wear on a high spot created by a fold ?

There's a difference between a fold, and a crease. Folded so tightly that the foundation fibers are broken or split, is a crease. That would required some expert work because the foundation has to be replaced. Associated stretching in adjacent spots would be difficult to get right again.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Hint.

Regards
Chuck Wagner
