Reusable and long lasting, the Sweater Comb is made with a flexible screen that works well for de-pilling all fine-gauge wool, cashmere, merino, mohair, blends, and more.
Contrary to popular belief, pills are caused by wearing (rather than washing). When fibers loosen, they form little balls, which tend to appear on loosely woven woolens, knitted synthetics, and blends. These pills commonly occur in areas of friction, such as cuffs and where arms rub along sides.We love using this comb to de-pill our delicate knits and fine-gauge woolens while leaving our heavier knit items to the Sweater Stone. We like to have both tools on hand to use on sweaters, scarves, wool coats, and even pant legs. Two fine metal mesh screens on a cedar wood handle gently pick up stray pills while leaving renewed yarns behind. Simply glide in one direction over target areas.
