Pilling, a natural happen
It may happen that sweaters made of fine yarns such as Cashmere may show a tendency to form fluff or fiber balls called ''pilling''. This happens because the shorter fibers of which the yarn is made, in rubbing during daily use or in the washing phase, tend to detach and then agglomerate.
This occurrence could be remedied in the production phase by using more twisted yarns, or by adding substances that inhibit the detachment of the fibers; both devices, however, would have the consequence of a significant loss of softness and softness.
The appearance of pilling should not be interpreted as an indicator of low quality of the materials used, nor should it be a cause for concern because it can be removed with simple maintenance, either manually or using special tools.
Our philosophy leads us to prefer a knitted garment that expresses all the naturalness of the precious yarn of which it is made.
Care and Maintenance
Do not wear a Cashmere item two days in a row:
let it rest for at least one day, airing it for a few hours on a flat surface outdoors before wearing it again.
Gently remove the fiber’s balls:
put the sweater on a flat surface, remove softly the pilling (the fiber agglomerates) by hand or with suitable brush or with the electric lint remover.
Wash inside out:
Hand wash at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C using a specific detergents in a small quantities.
Rinse well, dry flat:
avoiding squeezing vigorously, cashmere loves water! Carefully spread the garment horizontally to dry it, avoiding sources of light and heat. If the garment has been properly treated, it will not be necessary to iron it, at most a simple shot of steam.
After the first washings carried out with these precautions, the formation of pilling will end naturally and the original softness of the Cashmere will be preserved over time.
