A highly needled fabric is produced by treating fabric, e.g., a needled fabric having a density of at least 8 pounds per cubic foot, with a needling fluid and then needling to increase the density, e.g., to at least 12 pounds per cubic foot. The needling fluid is preferably an aqueous fluid containing a surface active agent and/or thickening agent and preferably a foam is produced during needling to aid in maintaining add-ons of needling fluid of at least 100%, e.g., 150% to 250%.

A total of 445 college students (74.4% female; Meanage of 20; 18 to ...
