Malabrigo sure does pill
A while back I asked on the forum if anyone knew to what extent Malabrigo pilled. I never got a reply. Well, I know now. Not surprising, I guess, because it's so soft and loosely spun and I know pilling is typical of soft yarns. But yeah, it pill extensively. Most of my clothes being store-bought, I had never really seen anything quite like this, at least not so quickly.

I broke out the sweater comb, but still, it's no fun. oh well.

Have you tried a cheap disposable mens razor? I use that to clean up my felted bags, works wonders.
