A Note on
Pilling can occur due to normal everyday use and should not be considered a fault.
There are many variables which can trigger pilling including the weather conditions, purity of the living room atmosphere, and how you use the furniture. Even specific clothing types like fleecy tracksuits can rub against the furniture and cause pills to transfer across.
An easy way to remove pilling is by using a battery-operated tool available from most haberdashery stores such as Spotlight.
