Wool poly mix. Will it wear well or bobble?

I was looking at a peacoat/reefer in 74% wool but rest man made. The fabric is quite fine and thinner than I expected but I quite like the shape of it. I'm wondering how well the fabric will last or will I be cursing bobbles after a few wears?!

Polyester mixes tends to bobble quickly ime. Acrylic is the worst offender but polyester can be pretty bad too.

74%wool 22% nylon 4% polyester. I have no idea what this fabric will do.

I wish you could still access reviews on next sale items!

Can't help with the fabric but I have returned coats and knitwear for bobbling quickly before - if they do this I honestly consider the material not fit for purpose and therefore faulty. The worst was an All Saints coat that cost £255! angryI have never had any issues with returning for a refund so might be worth a try?

Also some of my all time best-wearing coats have been synthetic fibres so might be okay in any case!
