Q&A with rowoman

karen.vau. asked:
Do you find the knit fabric pills? I am having a hard time with knits pilling, and would like to know if you are having the same issues. I shop at Fabricland (Fabricville in New Brunswick).
rowoman answered:
hmmm, i do shop fabricland, but the knits are always "ends", and "unknown fibres"...that said, the ONLY problem with pilling I have had was their Ponte knit...go figure, the expensive $30/m...when I mentioned it to them they said maybe it was the high rayon content...but I wouldn't know. I have bought lots of tshirt material and wear them endlessly, no pilling
