What is "Sanforising" - Definition & Explanation

The process of physically compressing (or shrinking) woven fabrics so that they don't shrink unacceptably when a customer washes them. Most fabric processes work under tension that stretch fabrics as they are being prepared, dyed or finished and this final process undoes some of that stretching. (also called compacting)
