What Is Sizing?

Dear Jennifer-
I stumbled upon your web site and I am hoping you may know what I am talking about and even have an answer. My employers just bought some cotton scarves in Mexico and they said they have that treatment “seizing or seizing”. do you know what they are talking about? And how can you remove it? Please let me know if you have any ideas or maybe where to point.
thanks for your time-Dana

Could this be “sizing” you are talking about? If so, sizing is a surface treatment which keeps new items from crushing and makes them look smooth and new in the store. It comes out with washing. Be aware, cotton from Mexico may be unstable in color and leak dye everywhere. You may also have significant shrinkage. hope this helps!
