Pilling

the formation on the surface of a woven fabric or knit of small, ball-shaped tufts - known as pill - from synthetic, typically polyester fibres made from yarns with a high content of these fibres; formed by the coiling and clustering of protruding fibres on the fabric surface. There are various ways of reducing p., such as the choice of an appropriate polyester fibre or the application of an anti-pilling finish.
