After reading some excellent reviews of Nagrani socks on AAAC and the Style forum, I decided to try them. They are some wild stripe patterns in cotton with woven stripes. They are all cotton and I purchased them from the Nagrani site. I have many other socks in cashmere, cotton, and merino wool which are just as epensive ( the Nagrani were $35 per pair). After a couple of washes, the Nagrani began to pill; pills developed on both the background color and the stripes. Now, after about six washes, there are pills all over the socks. They are still wearable, maybe to the car wash. I e-mailed Nagrani about this problem, but haven't heard from them yet. I'm not trying to get my money back, but I did want them to know how disatisfied with their product I am. I washed the socks as I wash all my better socks: cold water on gentle cycle and line dry. I don't think that washing has anything to do with the excessive pilling, but a short fiber would. Just like to know if anyone else has had problems with Nagrani? These socks are definiely not worth $35!
