Dealing with pilling
When you have a new piece of quality knitwear you undoubtably have to deal with some pilling, especially in places where there is friction. Generally alpaca is known for pilling less than both sheep´s wool and cashmere. Here is how I deal with it.
I bought a sweater-stone at my local yarn shop and just brush it over the garment in the same direction as the stitches. It is best if you hold the garment a little stretched while doing this.
After seven minutes my son´s sweater looked like this. All done.
