Get the most from your wardrobe and ensure clothes last longer with the fourth and final part in our comprehensive guide to clothing care, created in partnership with Steamery.

Pilling is a natural process expected of many textiles, but it doesn't mean it's any less inconvenient when it happens. Ever been excited about a new jumper only to have the wind taken out of your sails by a few unexpected and unsightly bobbles of fabric? New knitted jumpers for example are the most likely to pill as some of the fibres are still a little loose from the manufacturing process.

The good news is, Extra Fine Merino Wool at UNIQLO for women and men is made with special anti-pilling processing to prevent the likelihood of pills developing, keeping you looking smoother for longer.

But when it does happen, it's good to know what to do to fix those annoying little balls of fluff.

Many might consider wool jumpers to be worn out because of lint and pilling, but that’s not necessarily the case. By shaving off the pills on your garments with a quality fabric shaver, the jumper will look like new again in just a few minutes. This works on almost any kind of garment that attracts lint . Just make sure to go extra easy on your delicate knitted jumpers.

We hope that through this guide, we have been able to give you some new knowledge about clothing care. Taking care of your clothes shouldn’t be time consuming and complex, it should be easy and fun for everybody. And remember, you don’t have to be a textile expert to make an impact. It’s actually quite simple, just make a habit out of washing less, washing right and caring more.
