When was the last time you removed the pills from your sweaters or even fabric shirts? It’s not a fun job but it is the nature of fabric to pill. In this article I will discuss the top fabric-pill remover you can’t live without.
Maybe you have the same problem as I have. I have a sweater I knit Rick (my dear hubby) a few years ago and it has become quite fuzzy and he can’t wear it in public – eek! Ok, I’ve been lazy in the upkeep. I admit it. D-fuzzing is not on my top ten things to do. I’m embarrassed to show you, but here is the sweater in desperate need of attention. Sadly I have considered tossing it. But, hey, I put a lot of hours into knitting this sweater and I know if I just shave all the fuzzies off, it will again be wearable “outside” of our house.
So, I’ve noticed a certain fuzz remover popping up in a lot of advertising in the knitting industry, which has prompted my search for the perfect fabric-pill remover. As a yarn shop owner, I thought I needed to get on the stick and carry this coveted fuzz remover in the shop. I was convinced I was missing out on the best thing on the market. However, I’ve been doing a little research, I’m just wired that way, and discovered this great article on Good Housekeeping: Best Fabric-Pill Removers. They have already done the ultimate research and testing for me. Yay – and guess what…I already personally own one of their top picks (Evercare Fabric Shaver) and this highly advertised product I’ve been envying, doesn’t even rate well. Am I going to carry a fabric-pill remover in the shop? Unfortunately none of the top rated removers are offered by any of my distributors at this time. Maybe someday but for now I would rather not carry a subpar item when I know there are better solutions out there that I can recommend to you. For now you can purchase the Evercare Fabric Shaver on Amazon. Click on picture below.

And now, take a look at my results. It’s only a little spot but I am on my way now to having a sweater for Rick to wear. Don’t wait as long as I did! Begin shaving those garments and start wearing them again!
