Pilling is a very natural stage that all knitwear goes through. This doesn't mean that your jumper is in any way poor quality. These bobbles are just a sign that your jumper has been worn and loved. In order to keep these pesky bobbles at bay, we would recommend that you use a defuzzer comb before and after washing. Use the comb by gently combing it over the pilled section in the same direction as the fabric. Follow this step regularly, and you should see a noticeable drop in bobbling in the future!
At Mistral, not only do we love to use natural fibres, but we also love to use speciality wools such as alpaca. However, these knits do have a tendency to shed. But don't worry! This is completely natural for these types of fibres. To prevent shedding, simply use a lint roller over the knitwear to remove excess fibres.
