Fulling

Weaving fulling definition

In weaving, fulling is a cloth finishing process by which the fabric is washed and the yarns shrink and bond together. It’s similar to felting, although a piece can be fulled without having the texture of felted fibers. Fulling tends to shrink the fabric, but the extent depends on the particular yarn being used.
