Generally, the first process of fabric pretreatment is singeing, especially for the fabric of natural fiber, as cotton\flax etc., they all need singeing to wipe redundant fibers which are nonuniform on the fabric, this process will make the fabric looks more glossy, and make the grain line more clear. Singeing can benefit dyeing and printing, it can also cut the yarn end and confused yarn.
Singeing & mercerization technique is a high-tech in 1990s. The high count pure cotton yarn will become more smooth and breathable after singeing. Then the fabric will keep the pure cotton characteristics and got the better glossiness after mercerizing, it can give you the pure cotton character and silk feeling.
