thanks, everyone!

Sadly, sewing it in with cotton doesn't seem to work as you can never get the very end sewn in and somehow it always conspires to come through the work! A friend suggested painting the loose ends with a small amount of clear nail-varnish because that will stop their flexibility (which I think is causing the problem - it's when the fabric moves and the rough ends rub against the smooth stitches + they are then pushed through by the friction, with nothing to stop them) I am going to give that a go I think, although i will need to test out a sample swatch to see how it would wash and if the varnish makes it feel bad.
