I have question about pilling

I washed my socks and I pulled them out of the dryer and they weren't ruined, but they were messy with the little pill balls all over them.

Does this happen because I'm washing them incorrectly or because they aren't good quality socks?

Ha Ha Ha, I'll say!

Your socks were probably not designed to go into a washer & dryer. I never put socks in the dryer unless they're 100% cotton or inexpensive athletic cotton socks. Of course, wool can never go into a washing machine. I'm not familiar with synthetic materials. If you don't have the original packaging to check care instructions, don't assume they're machine washable.

I expect many are going to be disappointed by the content of this thread...ha!

I don't understand. Why do they make socks that aren't designed to go into the washer and/or dryer?

Who has the time/energy/money to hand wash or even dry clean socks?

All I want is some goddamn socks that don't pill.

I wash and dry my smart wool socks all the time.

Use the low heat setting on the drier.

Check the fabric content of your socks. There a lots of things not meant to be put in the washer and dyer. You may need to hand wash them.
