English term or phrase:spiralty, pilling
More textile terms, I'm afraid:
No attention to detail is overlooked, meaning that there is less spiralty and reduced pilling in the garments.
Many thanks - spiralty was not quite Verdrehung but led me on the right path - in fact less of it seems to mean "Formbeständigkeit", in case you're interested. A geat help, anyway - Cheers! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: Pilling happens to all knitwear and other garments.
The fabric pills (rubs) after contact with abrasive surfaces and
in the course of just wearing the garment, and then tiny "knots" appear on the fabric.
Explanation: Pilling is the term generally used. I found it in several glossaries (e.g the 1st URL below) , also described as "Knötchenbildung"I am not sure about "Garndrehung". You should check with your client what "spiralty" is exactly. Check out the 2nd URL. (They use "Pillbildung" by the way). HTH Eva
