Here’s the short answer: it’s got pilling issues. It’s still perfectly wearable. Read on to know more.
The fabric is made of 30s cotton lyocell & 80 D/108F polyester yarn. The polyester yarn used for tucking was low-intermingled (LIM) with higher filaments.
High-filament polyester yarn with low intermingling has the tendency of fraying while knitting. Fraying happens randomly while knitting which is not visible to the naked eye. This gets pronounced in consecutive processes of dyeing, finishing, washing, etc. Now Frayed polyester fibres don’t make pills in isolation, but they act as a catalyst in getting loose fibres of cotton/lyocell to entangle resulting in pill formation.
A pill, colloquially known as a bobble, fuzzball, or a lint ball, is a small ball of fibres that forms on a piece of cloth.
You can usually remove pills with a fabric comb or a battery-operated pill/lint remover. Additionally, bio-wash is also another fabric finishing process that enhances fabric quality by decreasing the pilling tendency and fuzziness of knitted fabrics.
Wash less. Also make sure you turn the garment inside out so the top layer of the fabric is less exposed to other garments during the wash process.
None. They’re absolutely fine otherwise.
If cared for well, these garments are designed to last for a long time. Bleeding and shrinking will not be an issue on these.
