Pilling explained by the expert
No garment that is composed of both natural (in our case Cashmere) and synthetic fibers remains free of pilling; therefore pilling is not a sign of low product quality. Pilling is only a thin and superficial excess of shorter fibers which, due to friction against other surfaces, clump together and form"balls". It would be possible to reduce pilling by treating cashmere with industrial processes but there would be a serious loss of quality in terms of garment softness.
