Posts Fluffing & Pilling

Posted: February 20th 2021

As cotton and wool are short fibres, they have a tendency to ‘fluff’. If this is not managed by washing the garment inside out, the fluffs will develop into pilling in wear areas like under arms, across stomach and over shoulders for school bags. When these items are washed inside out, the action of light abrasion against itself will reduce the fluffing and avoid pilling. Pilling and fluffing can also be reduced by using a fabric comb, or a battery operated Fuzz Buster, lightly over the fabric. NEVER use sharp blades or razors.

A little garment management goes a long way and will keep your wool garments looking great for a long time.
