Physical finishes
Brushing can be applied to
natural and man-made fabrics,
e.g. wool, cotton and
polyester. The fabric is
passed between a number of
rollers which have tiny wires
on the surface. These wires
brush the fabric and leave it
fluffy. This process is popular
for bedding and fleece
outerwear.
