Pilling is both common and natural and occurs on knitwear. It occurs when the shortest fibre in the yarn reaches the surface of the garment. The amount of pilling depends on the type of fibres in the yarn. For example, short fibres are found in acrylic and nylon, and longer fibres are found in cotton and lambswool. New garments have more excess fibres and will therefore pile up more initially. Pilling is caused by friction, so you will often find pilling in the armholes and on the sides of the garment.


It's easy to remove the pilling and the garment will look like new. Pilling can be removed with a pilling comb or a pilling remover.

About Holebrook Sweden

Holebrook is a Swedish brand with a focus on knitted clothing. We were born on the Swedish west coast and our first collection was knitted sweaters with a windproof elastic lining. Today, more than twenty years later, they are still part of our collection. Sustainability is part of our DNA, it’s reflected in our business model and in our brand strategy. Our down-to-earth approach to sustainability is based on wool, cotton, mohair and alpaca. Natural materials that do not need to be washed as often, which prolongs the life of the garments and reduces their impact on the environment. Our clothes are timeless and made for the seasons, not the trends. All our clothes are made in Europe by suppliers who share our strive and commitment to quality and sustainability.
