The whole thing is called a fringe.


The ones in the second photo are tassels.

  • @MichaelHarvey I was hoping it could be called 'tassellated' but apparently not (yet). Jan 19 at 11:13
  • This is the correct answer. The OP is asking about the threads on the edges. If the OP asked about all of the threads together as some design or structural element, then fringe would be appropriate. Jan 19 at 21:05
