Cotton Balls on Fabric

cottonHi! At a batik class I took in college many moons ago J the teacher explained that when you mix polyester and a certain fabric you get fuzz balls on the piece. I think it was cotton but I am not sure. Do you know? Does it happen to all mixes with polyester? Thanks! Nilsa

Dear Nilsa,
Several fiber combinations will “pill” or make tiny fuzz balls. Any combination in which one of the fiber staples is longer and stronger than the other has the potential for this. I can’t tell from your question if you desire this result or not!
Please write back with further info if this doesn’t answer your question.
