...a lovely lambswool long top/dress that cost £42 shock in the sale shock (nb. I usually do my own clothes shopping in Sainsburys - when they have a sale on - so £42 for one item is huge, felt fairly extravagant and was only spent because I had money given to me at Christmas).

Anyhoo I bought the item on Dec 27th, I have worn it twice for two evenings with friends so it has been worn for about 6 hours in total. This morning whilst putting it away in the wardrobe I discover that it has gone totally bobbly along both of the sleeves. angry Not happy. Do I just accept that lambswool does this and start the regular routine of shaving it with a de-bobbler, or would I be being unreasonable to take it back to Monsoon and tell them that I don't expect something that has cost me £42 to look worn and spoiled after less than a day's wear...? Annoyed? Yes I bloody well am... angry MPD

all wool and cashmere bobbles within a few hours of wear - that's the 'surface' bobbling - the good stuff doesn't pill much more once you've de-bobbled it the first time.

Spend ten minutes lightly tugging away at the pilling (or get some sellotape) wrap it around your hand and dab at it (you can get fancy clothes shavers for this too) - then wear it again and see how bad the pilling is next time.

If you're that upset about it, take it back.
