What Is Pilling? Pilling is a common trait of fabrics. With enough wear from abrasion, whether from friction or cleaning and laundering, the fibers from fabrics loosen and collect on the fabric surface. Most man-made fibers such as polyester, acrylic or nylon have a higher tendency to pill, though many natural fibers also unravel and pill with enough wear. The quality and construction of the fabric can reduce pilling—if the fabric is tight and dense, it will pill less and will be able to withstand much more wear; if the fabric is loose, much like knitted yarn, the chances of pilling are much stronger and much faster. So What Makes Clement™ Chef Wear Different? Simple. Clement™ chef wear is built from the highest quality, durable fabrics and has supreme construction. But Clement™ puts extra emphasis on the longevity of its products and goes the extra mile. Clement™ performs a special heat treatment to all their fabrics before the apparel is manufactured to prevent fabric pilling—100% guaranteed!
