I was using it for a small bag (one of the Noro books) and found it was 'fuzzing' quite a bit. It's so soft that it probably will pill. Anyways - didn't like how the bag was turning out so frogged it. Now have 4 skeins waiting for something else - probably a scarf. Many people have used it for the Hourglass Sweater. Google the knitalong and see if there are comments re the pilling. RoseM p.s. re shaving - go gently if you're using one of the battery operated sweater shavers. Used one too heavy handedly on a delicate wool . . .
I was thinking more about this . . . sometimes we use the wrong word . . . could it be that what you are seeing is 'blooming' or 'fuzzing'? I've found that often happens with looser spun delicate fibre yarns - and that was what was happening with my Cash Iroha. To me pilling is little bally things that come up in spots that get more friction than others. Not saying you don't know what pilling is . . . just a suggestion. RoseM
I ***think*** a yarn pills or fuzzes or whatever when the fibers of the yarn are short and pull apart from the spun yarn easily. At least, that's how it was explained to me. Why a yarn will do one or the other, I have no idea.
