What is the pilling?

by Admin Mastro Cashmere Italy

In the first stages of using a pure cashmere garment, a superficial excess of fibre called “pilling” can occur. Pilling is that particular process that leads to the formation of small irregular balls of fibre called “pills”.
These pills are formed due to rubbing or friction mechanisms, and are not considered a sign of cashmere lower quality, but a natural consequence of use. After two or three washes the excess nap will disperse to make room for the “heart” of the fibre. You can manually remove the excess fibre with the help of a soft brush or specific comb.
