A finishing process where the cloth is dressed to add firmness and sheen, a process that also pre-shrinks the fabric.

Woven fabric – usually plain woven – is usually taken through perforated rollers which blow steam through, then allowed to cool naturally. The piece is then reversed so that other side can be treated the same way.

Wool is held between leaves of cotton and decatised under tension –         sometimes called crabbing.
