What is "Singeing" - Definition & Explanation

Also called gassing, singeing is a process applied to both yarns and fabrics to produce an even surface by burning off projecting fibres, yarn ends, and fuzz. This is accomplished by passing the fibre or yarn over a gas flame or heated copper plates at a speed sufficient to burn away the protruding material without scorching or burning the yarn or fabric. Less hairy yarn generally costs more.
Process of burning off protruding fibers from fabrics to give the fabric a smooth surface.
