  1. Can anyone tell me what difference in these sleeves?

    Nap or Pile mean the same, microfiber is a synthetic yarn, Purdy Colosuss are 100% polyamide, White Dove are Draylon a derivative of nylon which enables the paint to flow freely for a high quality finish. Roller choice is also down to what paint are you using and what surface is to be painted, smooth, rough etc.

  6. Thanks matey appreciated.

    What would you recommend for fresh plastered walls? Looking for good finish although I take it the better finish rollers don’t last as long?

    Cheers

    I use Purdy 9"and 12" medium and long pile rollers most of the time as I do not do commercial work , you will be fine with a medium pile. 'Ye Olde' saying is look after you're tools and they will look after you.
