Pilling – A natural phenomenon and a sign of quality in natural fibres

We all know this unattractive fuzz that builds up on typical points of friction on knitted products. However, most people don't know that this pilling effect mainly occurs on knitwear made of high-quality wool. These small nubs usually occur after the first wear. In doing so, particularly fine, short fibres from the yarn loosen and attach themselves to the surface of the fabric. This effect is very strong at first but continuously decreases over time. Pilling nubs can be easily picked by hand from chunky knits, while we would recommend the use of a special pilling razor to remove nubs from fine knitwear.
