Prevent & Remove Pilling

Pilling & Balling are the terms given to the small, fuzzy balls that sometimes form on the surface of a fabric. Cashmere pills are caused by the tangeling of top hairs on cashmere. Low-quality cashmere is especially prone to pilling as it is composed of mainly short fibers.  High-quality cashmere products such those found at the Cashmere Shop will not pill excessively when properly cared for.

The best way to prevent cashmere pills is by washing your cashmere frequently. If you do have some pills, we recommend removing them by hand before washing and if there are any remaining after you’ve blocked take a minute to gently remove the rest.
