This page says polyester is less likely to pill than cotton, but that's the opposite of what other web pages say and what happens in my wardrobe. Perhaps this should be clarified or corrected? Martin (talk)
The article says that polyester does not have a tendency to pill. Actually polyester has a strong tendency to pill (although pill resistant polyesters have been developed) "Pilling occur with many types of fiber, but is more serious with the stronger fibers because pills remain attached to the surface and do not wear off." (Handbook of Fiber Chemistry, Lewin and Pearce, 1998 pg 40.)
