Wash mitt quality

Has anyone else had a problem with the quality of autofinesse washmits. I’ve not had mine that long and it’s now got a hole in it. I did notice the first few times I used the mit that the hairs where falling out?

Lambswool washmitts are wool woven into a man made backing.

Sheepskin washmitts are the hide of the sheep.

Nature tends to be better at fixing fibres to a backing material, hence sheepskin washmitts and pads tend to last a lot longer.

Often hear of problems with lambswool mitts, but very rare for problems with sheepskin.

I bought the microfiber one and it was really grabby, didn't like it at all. Used it once and it's now in a box somewhere, I'll probably use it for wheels or something.

Same as me. Only used mine once on paintwork. Will use it for the wheels I think.
