Pilling

Definition: Pilling


Pilling

n. Small hard surface balls of fabric, usually found in "wear" areas of a garment. Caused by use of staple yarns and/or loosely woven yarns.

To avoid pilling, hand wash sweaters. For those that are machine washable, turn them inside out before tossing into the washer. Or buy this Brookstone Fabric Shaver, $20.
