In a few of the cotton yarns lately I have noticed the term "gassed" used in connection with mercerized cotton.
Could anyone tell me what it means?
Thanks, Char

I looked on a couple of websites and found this:
After being singed and mercerized, the gassed-mercerized cotton sewing thread is tight and fine, even and clean and soft. Soft cotton yarn with very nice sheen. Cable-structured, very crisp stitch definition.

Seems to be a finishing process.

Gassing, like mercerization, adds sheen and polish to the finish of the cotton. Here`s a definition from
http://www.fibre2fashion.com/GLOSSARY/glossary7.htm :
"Gassed Yarn - A Yarn That Has Been Passed Through A Flame Or Over A Heated Element To Remove Surface Fibres."
