The label on my jumper reads " I am prone to pilling". Am I meant to feel sorry for it ,when pilling inevitably occurs, in case I hurt it's feelings? AIBU to think this is just an excuse for bad merchandise?

not necessarily bad merch. Some fabrics pill worse than others.

I think it’s an honest label I d certainly avoid it if I saw that as all the blooming jumpers I buy seem prone to piling

I loved the Brabantia bin bags I used to buy. On the side was printed "Ich bin ein Binliner".
