What is "Salvage" - Definition & Explanation

Narrow edge of woven fabric (warp direction) usually of stronger yarns or denser construction than body of coth.
A selvedge that varies in width.

NOTE:

Variations in weft tension or lack of control of the warp ends within the selvedge may result in such unevenness. Pulled-in selvedges are caused by pulling in of the edges by isolated tight picks. Dog-legged selvedges are the result of the characteristic gradual change in weft tension that occurs as some types of weft pirn are unwound, regular changes in selvedge width being present at each pirn change.
