The phenomenon of when fibers in a set of sheets start to break down and tangle is known as pilling. This can be rather unsightly to see on your sheets, and may even be uncomfortable to use depending on how widespread the pilling is.

Sheets pill for a number of reasons: the materials aren’t very high quality, you’re using water and dry cycles that are too hot, or using too many harsh chemicals in the wash as well. Pilling can also happen from just general wear and tear as you use them due to friction.

There are a few ways to prevent this from happening. You can use lower heat settings in the wash and dry cycles. You could also opt for percale weave sheets, which do a better job of resisting pilling over sateen weave sheets. If pilling does happen, you can use a lint roller or a pair of scissors to remove. But if pilling is happening, and your sheets look thin, it’s time to replace them.
