Textile process that diminish such characteristics as glassiness, slipperiness, and the chance of pilling (configuration of little fibre tangles on a fabric shell). Texturizing methods make yarns more opaque, improve look and touch, and boost warmness and absorbency. Texturing is the formation of folds, loops, coils, or crinkles in filaments. Such alterations in the physical shape of a fibre have an effect on the behavior and hand of textiles made from them. Hand, or handle, is an all-purpose term for the characteristics perceived by the sense of touch when a fabric is held in the fingers, such as drapability, smoothness, flexibility.
