Pilling

Pilling Pilling is characterized by pulls in the jersey material. Typically, it is found on the inside of a jersey and is usually the result of rubbing from the player's stick, pads or other equipment. Pilling is frequently found around the inside armpit areas of a jersey or inside the sleeves where Velcro from shoulder and elbow pads can rub against the jersey material.

The longer a jersey is worn, the more pilling it is likely to have. Also, some jersey materials show more pilling than others. For example, Air-Knit jerseys tend to take longer to accumulate pilling than do Ultrafil jerseys.
