What is "Pilling" - Definition & Explanation
Balling up of fiber ends on the surface of fabric.
A tangled ball of fibers that appears on the surface of a fabric, as a result of wear, abrasion, or continued friction or rubbing on the surface of the fabric.
Small balls of fuzz form on a fabric surface as a result of abrasion, such as washing or wearing. Pilling doesn't affect performance until it starts to thin the fabric.
The tendency of fibres to work loose from a surface and form balled or matted particles that remain attached to the surface of the carpet.
