DISCLAIMER: Due to the fabric make-up of this item, it may pill in high friction areas over time. Unfortunately, this is out of our control due to the incredibly soft fabric and everyday wear. We suggest washing in cold water inside out and laying flat to dry. In order to get rid of the pills, we suggest using a fabric shaver or a sweater stone. You can purchase the sweater stone from Laundress here. We love it and it eradicates the pilling.
