Mrs Confused Cyclist bought me a TØRM T7 jersey for our wedding anniversary, it cost a few bob and is lovely and snug on cooler mornings like today, past exeperiences of merino items is that they are just as functional as man made stuff and durable to boot. Despite utmost care during laundry, this jersey is bobbling and piling heavily and looks rather unsightly only a few weeks into ownership. I prefer wool over synthetics on account of the pong problem, and also there's the fact wool is biodegradable whereas man made (plastic) fibres in lycra will be filling our oceans and food chain with micro plastic for millennia to come, but damn, this pilling of natural wool fibres is so ugly! It's odd, because this hasn't happened with any of my merino base layers, it must be the knit technique used by Torm is more prone to piling. It's only washed at 30 degrees, on sports (gentle) cycle and I'm careful not to put anything that will snag or tear at the wool fibres (e.g. Velcro'd secured gloves). I did use fairy non-bio for a couple of weeks, but have since switched to wool friendly detergents for my cycling kit. Has anyone experienced similar with their merino wool jerseys? 1. How do I quickly fix bobbling now it's happened. (I spent 40 minutes hand picking fibres the other week, now I'm back to square one, ain't nobody got time for that!) 2. How do you stop it happening again?!
