Why do socks pilling and how should they be removed?

2021-09-14 11:54:34

Socks are prone to pilling after being worn for a long time, especially cotton socks. Pilling will be obvious and look particularly ugly. So why does the socks pilling? How to remove?

Why do socks pilling?

The main ingredients of socks are:
Natural fiber:cotton, bamboo fiber.
Wynthetic fiber:polyester, spandex and other elastic fibers.
The comparison of fiber abrasion resistance is: the abrasion resistance of bamboo fiber is lower than that of cotton fiber, and the abrasion resistance of cotton fiber is lower than that of polyester and other synthetic fibers.

During the use of the socks, the natural fibers (cotton or bamboo fibers) are first worn off, and the synthetic fibers have good wear resistance and are not easy to break. In this way, the worn natural fibers are wound on the synthetic fibers to form small balls.This is pilling.
