how to handle ends of slub/bouclé yarn
I have a work near completion in which I combined 5 yarns. (I prefer not to discuss the wisdom of that choice at this time.) Two of the yarns are Ironstone's Felicia, a cotton and rayon blend, slub-bouclé type. The other yarns include raw silk, baby cashmerino, and a narrow silk ribbon.

I cannot 'weave' the ends of the Felicia into the body of the garment. The bumps will NOT go through. What's the best way to handle these yarn ends? They are at the edges, where I changed yarn types.
