What is "Pre-Shrunk" - Definition & Explanation

The fabric is allowed to shrink during finishing to reduce residual shrinkage in the final product.
Fabrics which have received a treatment, which causes shrinking. Often done on cottons before cutting the fabric in order to remove the tendency for shrinkage in the finished garment. The percent of residual shrinkage must be indicated on the label of the treated goods or garments.
