What the Fuzz? Fabric Pilling Explained

AVIS: CET ARTICLE EST SEULEMENT DISPONIBLE EN ANGLAIS.

Ah, the old "I-only-wore-it-once-and-now-it's-pilling" scenario; we're all too familiar. The fact is, pilling happens and even the finest fabrics aren't immune. Here's a crash course on why fuzz balls accumulate and how to undermine the process.

Why the Fuzz?

Textiles are made with yarn, a spun thread used in both knitted and woven fabrics. With every wash, wear and the ticking of time, the tiny fibers that make up the yarn break. Thanks to not-so-fabulous friction, these "broken" fibers ball up to create pills (aka: fuzz balls) on the fabric’s surface. They then proliferate in high-friction areas like the under-arms, sleeves, bust area, and inner thighs. Yay.

Virtually all fabrics pill to some degree. The extent to which it's noticeable varies and it depends on 1) the fiber content, 2) the fabric structure, and 3) wash and care.

1) Fiber Content

Fiber content makes reference to what the fiber is actually made of. In general terms, we're talking natural fibers (cotton, linen, wool and silk to name a few), synthetic fibers (acrylic, polyester, lycra and others) and blends (Ex: cotton-polyester blend or a wool-acrylic blend).

Some fibers are more pill-prone than others. As a general rule, natural fibers pill less than synthetics as the individual strands that make up the yarn are both shorter and less robust. As a result, broken fibers are more likely to break off before they pill and the fuzz balls that do accumulate are more easily removed.

Synthetics, on the other hand, make for some tough fuzz. The long, robust strands found in these yarns tend to pull and stretch into pills rather than break off.

2) Fabric Structure 

Knitted fabrics are made by looping yarn; woven fabrics are made by interlacing yarn at right angles. Knits (yes, even the really expensive ones) are looser in construction, leaving them more susceptible to friction and thus more prone to pilling. But, we love them for their forgiving stretch, deliberate textures and intricate pattern play (hello chunky cable knit!).

3) Wash & Care

Just as important as “what’s in it” and “how it’s made” is the tender loving care that you give each garment. Machine washing and drying are two major sources of friction so it’s important to read care labels carefully and launder your garments accordingly. For clothes that look new longer, use a mild detergent and wash them inside-out. As an extra precaution, skip the dryer and hang or lay flat to dry.

Of course, when pilling strikes despite your best efforts (and it will), we have an app for that: The Gleener Ultimate Fuzz Remover and its trusty travel sidekick, the Gleener on the Go

I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 2 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Oyagu helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322

Natural herbs have cured so many illnesses that drugs and injection cant cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. I read people’s testimonies online on how they were cured of herpes, hiv, diabetics etc by Dr. Maggi herbal medicine, so I decided to contact the doctor because I know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with hiv for the past 7 years but Dr. Maggi cured me with his herbs and I referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from herpes and they were cured too .I know it is hard to believe but I am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he casts spells to restore broken marriages and good luck spells to prosper and excel in life. Contact Dr. Maggi on  drmaggiherbalhome@gmail.com Phone/Whatsap no: +19179796387
