We at Gröna Gredelina like wool and cashmere, lovely natural materials that can last for less eternity if you take care of them right. With our natural noppborttagare, a wool and cashmere stone, you can easily remove the dots that sometimes occurs on these wool garments.
Dots or pilling as it is called in specialist language arises for a little different reasons and basically it is about quality, and quality is of course usually linked to price. The difficulty of the manufacturer is to get to a product that is not mill neps but at the same time is not too expensive.
To understand the emergence of Noppornas, you look at how the garment is constructed.
Yarn consists of fibres of a certain length. Dots is formed when short fibers begin to move in the yarn and then accumulate on tygytan in small balls. It happens when you nöter and rub on the fabric. i.e. when you use it and when you wash it.
Yarn in synthetic materials is often the worst.
"The materials are a bit smooth, so the fibers glide easily out and it becomes dots. Akrylgarnerna tend to be the worst, then they will probably be in polyester.
The first step towards a Noppfri cardigan is thus to try to choose a natural material that consists of long fine and even fibers. But it can be difficult to determine just by looking at the fabric. Instead, you can read the tag. Aiming for high quality pure wool and skipping Syntetblandningarna is a tip.
"Cashmere, for example, has a fantastic long and thin fiber. You can also choose other materials that are combed in the production, that is to say that the short fibres are removed. But you'll pay a little more for it.
– Merino wool can also be good, but quite sure that it is not mill neps, you can unfortunately never be.
If the garment mill NEPs or not depends also on how hard the yarn is spun, and on how hard woven or knitted garment then is.
"If you spin the yarn harder and knit it a bit firmer, the fibers are also left better. But often we want to have it a bit looser for it to be soft and cuddly to wear, and then increases the risk of pilling.
Another way to reduce nopprisken is to make sure to wash the garments properly.
– If the garment is wool, it should always be run on the wool program if you wash in machine. Centrifuge Absolutely not! But you should not turn the wool garments out and in without washing with the RS outward. Then you can get rid of the short loose fibers during washing and thus avoid them accumulating on the Tygytan. Cashmere is more sensitive and should be washed by hand, See our complete tips for wool here
