Premier® Anti-Pilling DK Colors® Batik is specially designed to create beautiful stripes in a batik print as you knit or crochet. With perfectly coordinated colors in each ball, even simple stitches will produce an eye-catching result. DK Colors Batik is made with Anti-Pilling Acrylic so your project will look Like New, Wash After Wash.™.
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.

I haven’t used this yarn, yet, because I just finished a knitted c2c baby blanket , using Everyday anti pilling yarns. But, I haven’t found any Premier yarns that disappointed me, I’m sure this new Batik will not be the first!

This was my first purchase of anti-pilling DK colors batik, and was delighted to find what beautiful yarn it is. I love the way the color is working up in the crocheted sweater that I am making. It is very soft , and I find it easy to work with. The more that I work with it , the more delighted I get as my project grows. I will definitely purchase again.
