Is it shedding or unravelling? Stitch around edges to stop it unravelling. Shedding, [short bits of thread dropping off the woven fabric not just edges] can not be stopped as the fibre staples used to make the thread are to short for the twist used. Try spray strach or glue solution to stiffen burlap, it may stop the shedding but will take away all drape.

Thank you balmyatticarts! I serged the edges of the burlap so I haven't come across the burlap unravelling...as of yet! I'll definitely try a spray starch or glue solution to stiffen the burlap, and hopefully it will help reduce the shedding as well!
