What does low pill fibre mean?
Low pill fiber refers to a type of synthetic or natural fiber that has been specifically engineered or treated to minimize the formation of pills. Pills are small balls of tangled fiber that form on the surface of fabric due to friction or abrasion during wear or washing.
Low pill fibers are designed to resist the formation of these pills, which can make garments look worn and unsightly. This can be achieved through a variety of methods such as adding a special coating to the fibers or adjusting the way the fibers are spun and knitted together.
Garments made from low pill fibers are often more durable and maintain their appearance over time, which makes them a popular choice for clothing items such as sweaters, socks, and blankets.
