Splitting wefts for installing on a wig cap - yay or nay?    I've found the posts on the board on this subject, but there aren't many.  If I am sealing and then sewing to a wig cap, will I be able to avoid undue shedding, if the weft is high quality?  (this is impressive-hair wefts I am considering splitting; not BSS)  Please discuss!

Well in my experience, which is not a ton but I have made wigs before, if the tracks are sturdy, it shouldn't cause a problem as long as you make sure you sew around the wefts and not through them. I currently have impressive-hair's kinky curly wefts in and the tracks are well made and sturdy. However, I do experience A LOT of shedding (did not seal though and might be because it is kinky curly). So sealing would probably help with that, but not sure of what it will do it you split them.

I'm not really giving you an answer, huh? Anyways, do hope it helps somehow 

Let me know what you decide and good luck :)

I did split the wefts for the last upart I made. (for the tracks sewn around my leave out so it is flatter)

The wefts were well constructed and I split it carefully in order not to cut the wefts and cause shedding. Although I did not seal, I have NO shedding whatsoever.

i guess it depends on the weft construction to be honest. My hair was from Holly.
