Remedies of Pilling

Steps to be taken prior and during spinning and weaving:
  1. Fibers with cross section other than circular fibers with dumb-bell cross section are the best to minimize pilling.
  2. Longer staple length, coarser fibers, higher extensibility etc restrict the slippage of the fibers and hence control the tendency of pill.
  3. The common suitable blends of polyester and cellulosic fibers in order to decrease the pilling are 67/33, 80/20, or 50/50.
  4. Higher proportion of short fibers in a yarn is another major cause of such fault. The combing process is thus essential in order to avoid this defect.
  5. Coarser count, hard twist, lower hairiness of the yarn is desirable to control pilling.
