Do you think this material is going to bobble like hell? It's 52% wool 38% polyester and 12% polyamide. It looks like boiled wool.

I saw this coat today and I love it. I was looking for a dress and don't need a coat. It also doesn't fasten. Aand It's not cheap but it looked great on and I love it. Looks much better than the picture. But if I bought it and it bobbled I would be gutted.


What do you think?

If it bobbled you could use one of those defuzz combs on it. If you think you'll get the wear to justify the price and can afford it then get it. They despatch within 2 hours - that's pretty fast.

No - my mistake, you can choose a two hour delivery slot.

Never mind. They're just up the road from me!. I'm a bit worried about it not closing but I felt chic in it.

Thanks. Bobble comb. OK.

Thanks. I went to get it today. I love it. I don't even care if it bobbles at the moment.

There's always people on her saying their knitwear doesn't pill. I teach Textiles science, all hair and wool fibres bobble. Worst offender in the bobbly stakes is polyester.

So. Yes, l fear it will pill. But you can defuzz it.
