Gassing provides an extremely smooth yarn
Yarn gassing is an industrial process in which cotton yarn passes quickly through a natural gas flame.
This removes any residual fluff and improves the appearance of the yarn.
Which yarns undergo the gassing process
The gassing process is mainly applied to Egyptian Makò fine cotton yarn to make it shinier.
On the other hand, gassing cannot be applied to synthetic or protein yarns since, because of their chemical composition, they would form pellets of molten plastic or carbon residues, respectively.
