Pilling is a natural, inevitable occurrence amongst products that are made using wool fibres. Pilling is when small, fluffy balls start to form on woollen clothing and items that receive some ‘wear and tear’, including rubbing or repetitive friction. Pilling is NOT a sign of poor quality wool, but is in fact the exact opposite. The more loosely spun a yarn, the more luxurious it tends to be, which allows fibres more opportunity for friction and in turn, pilling.
How to Remove Pills?
Care by hand
By hand is actually extremely meditative—how about some mindful de-pilling! You can either do this ongoing, whenever you notice pills, or after a wash.
Care by comb
Using a simple sweater comb, sometimes known as a ‘wool comb’ or a ‘cashmere comb’. These are easy to use, but depending on the make, can be a bit rough, so if you choose to use this method carefully follow the instructions.
Care by handheld electronic devices
The third option is our pick—grab yourself an electronic handheld “de-piller” or “fabric shaver”. This is the quickest, easiest and most reliable way to remove pilling and keep your woollens in top shape!
