Polar Fleece and Pilling

ChanAugust 29, 2004

I bought a polar fleece jacket that does not specify that it is non-pilling. It's 100% polyester with machine wash/dry instructions. Is there anything I can do while laundering to reduce, if not prevent, pilling?

Thanks!

Hi there,
I don't have any answer for you, but you may want to post this in the sewing forum. There are a lot of knowleadgeable people over there, who make LOTS of items from fleece!!

I heard that you should not put fabric softener in it.

I thought pilling was part of the charm! LOL!

Oh yeah! Don't EVER wash it with a towel! The little towel bits will end up stuck to your fleece. (don't ask how I know this...)

Make sure you wash it alone, hence it would not rub with other clothes, that might help.

I just bought a fleece the other day (my first) and never thought it would require so much attention, LOL. Thanks for all the advice. My label says machine wash, cool water, line dry. I would have thought it could be machine dryed, glad I checked.

:) turn it inside out, only wash it with non-linting/shedding objects, and line-dry it if you can.

great stuff, all the same :)
