What is "Napped" - Definition & Explanation

Napped is a dry, permanent finish in which fibers are raised from the fabric by bristled rotating brushes. This finish allows the fabric to provide more insulation, while also lowering its resistance to abrasion. Microsanded, Peach and Brushed are different types of napping.
