What is Pilling? Garments made from 100% natural yarns especially cashmere may 'pill' for the first couple of wears. These little balls, or 'pills' are created as the smaller fibres in the twist of yarn naturally shed with wear. Eventually this will lessen as you wash and wear your garment. Until then, they can be gently removed with our natural wood Pilling Comb. How to Use Carefully brush your knit with the comb and the pills will come away. Garments will look as good as new. Simply use the comb over the problem area of the garment. Allow comb to extract all the fluff and fuzz with ease. Use light, quick brush strokes with the comb over the garment. Garments must be pulled tight for a quick result.
