Pills are a terrible pain with fiber from wool. To help avoid them, pick a good fleece. One that the locks don't break in the middle when you pull on them. Get a fleece, that isn't completely damaged from vegtable matter, because vegtable matter cuts the wool, which breaks the wool, and breaking the wool causes split end, which causes pills. Fun huh! As I talked before about brushing with a flicker brush make sure that you brush easily so that the wool doesn't break, but hard enough to get out the vegetable matter. Then you wash your wool, I'll talk about washing later. But when you are done drying your wool make sure that your locks are aligned with the carders and gently card which doesn't create pills. Just remember breakage creates pills. Jenn
