    Hi, I have a sweater that is 50% wool and 50% polyamide. And there is no pilling after washing it. But if I wear for a few hours it is covered in pills. Any advice on how I can avoid it??

      Hi Suhana.
      Polyamide, like many other synthetics, tends to pill more. All you can do is keep removing the pills and I suggest not buying this 50/50 combination again because it sounds like a losing battle.
