Hello. I’m Athol Kirk, an independent election candidate for the Horowhenua District Council, Levin Ward. I write this to tell you a little about myself and why I believe I can be a positive influence in the council.

I have three grandchildren, under 10 years old, living in levin. Observing climate change, here and around the world, has me deeply concerned for the world that my grandies will have to have to live work and survive within. I will work hard to ensure that the council meets, or preferable exceeds, all of its climate change and environmental protection aims. I want the following generations of Horowhenua, New Zealand and all of the world to have a healthy environment to live within.

My Bachelor of Health Science degree, majored in Environmental Risk Management has equipped me with the tools for environmental protection, resource management and public safety.

More and more people and businesses are finding Horowhenua to be an attractive location to live and operate. To accommodate this growth considerable infrastructure needs to be constructed. It will be my aim to ensure that it is planned and constructed with full and deep consideration for the environment and the future

What is Fabric Pilling?

Whilst it can be unsightly, pilling is not a fabric defect or flaw.

You’ve no doubt had clothing, furniture or blankets that have developed ‘pills’ over time, or little lint balls, that can make the fabric look worn. This undesired texture is caused by loose or broken fabric fibres that rise to the surface and knot together after being rubbed or subjected to any friction. The loose fibres that are bunched into balls also bring in strands that are still secured to the fabric itself, thus the balls stick around on the exterior. Even though people are dismayed to see pilling on their items, understanding fabric pilling helps to prevent and remove these bothersome balls.

Causes of Fabric Pilling
What does it mean when fabric is pilling? Pilling is a result of normal wear and tear that causes friction on the fabric. Simply wearing clothes, using your couch or otherwise rubbing up against the material gives the possibility of pilling. Washing and drying clothes or fabric can also speed up the pilling process as it causes multiple surfaces to rub together fairly quickly and for a long period of time.

Sometimes you can have pilling that differs in colour to the base fabric as multiple coloured fibres have migrated and twisted together. Although not desired, a little decorative perhaps?

Pilling is more noticeable on synthetic fibres. This is mainly because natural fabrics shed loose fibres easily and naturally slip away so they tend to not become matted into balls. However, synthetic fibres are extremely strong, so it will pill and then remain strongly attached to the fabric.
