The present invention provides a method of producing excellent crimped fibers, in which artificial fibers are subjected to mechanical crimping, enveloped in a crimped state in a wrapping under tension, and are passed through a high temperature pressurized saturated steam chamber at the annealing temperature of the fibers. The crimps are permanently fixed by the effect of moisture and heat under a lateral pressure. The resulting fibers, when made into an end product, have a high degree of crimp recovery upon reheating in the finishing process, even if the crimps have been straightened by processing in air before finishing operation.
