Pilling, those little bobbles, happens from time to time. The day-to-day wearing and washing of fabrics cause the fibers that make up the fabric to split and form into these little bobbles.
This is not a defect, but how some fabrics age. Removing the pilling is part of good care for your Rab garment and will help extend the life of the product.
4 easy steps to remove pilling
- Get hold of a Sweater Stone. These are available online.
- Lay the garment flat, with the affected area pointing up.
- Rub the sweater stone along the grain of the fabric in one direction. Then lift, before changing direction. Repeat this until all the pilling is gone.
- Shake the garment to loosen any remnants. And clean your stone.
