Acrylic fiber is widely used for textiles of all kinds: clothing, upholstery, carpets, and of course yarn. Acrylic is strong, lightweight, warm, soft, and resilient making it the yarn of choice for many.
But acrylic has a tendency to form pills – those hard little balls of tangled fibers on the surface of a fabric that make your clothes look worn way too soon. The same fine surface fibers that give the fabric its soft feel clump together and become enmeshed. Pilling is most likely in the areas of a garment that are subject to friction, like sleeve cuffs or under the arms.
Anti-pilling acrylic is a Pilbloc™ fiber preparation available in the US exclusively through Premier® Yarns. This fiber is specially formulated to resist pilling over time. If and when pills do form, they are removed through the simple process of machine washing your sweater or other project. No picking, no shaving - just toss it in the wash! Sweaters and blankets made with anti-pilling acrylic come out of the laundry looking fresh and new, time after time.

The texture and weight of this yarn is perfect for some cardigans I'm in the process of making.
The only complaint I have is the color accuracy -- the "heather gray" is actually more of a charcoal, and the "carnation" is more of a peach. It's not bad, just not what I was expecting. I can still use it, but was disappointed that it wasn't like the swatch online. I know there is always a risk ordering online, so it's a chance I take.

Deep, rich blue!
I wouldn't have bothered using this yarn for 4 cardigans unless it met my requirements. Perfect color, washes and wears well, great blend of natural and man-made fibers. Thanks Premier!

Found that this was just a bit heavier than a typical DK at 21 sts/4 inches. Great stitch definition, and non-splitty. There were some uneven nubs/pills attached to the yarn throughout, but very easy to pluck out with no effect on the strand.
