I carry my big bag on my shoulder a lot and it rubs on my cashmere sweaters making these little fuzz balls on the sides that are difficult to remove by hand. This gadget works great. It does "shave" the fabric a bit, but also removes the fuzzy balls.

I bought this shaver for everyday clothes that have pilled with regular use and maintenance. I've used it for pieces made of soft cotton and it has trouble shaving these pieces because of how tiny the fuzz balls tend to be on softer, thinner fabrics. It didn't do as good of a job as I hoped, I hoped it work just as well for these types of fabrics. However, it did remove some of the pilling. I'm also worried that if I press down on the fabric too hard that I'll make a hole, so maybe I should try pressing just a little more firm. It should work better for thick sweaters with big fuzz balls. Also, a flat surface is best!
I tried the sweater stone before this product, and I prefer this shaver b/c the sweater stone leaves sandy debris and slightly damages the fabric (since you have to firmly sweep the fabric with the stone so that the fuzz balls get caught in the porous stone and yanked off the fabric).

We used it to refresh a bunch of old sweaters and socks and the results were amazing! Be sure to go slow over a smooth surface so the fabric doesn't get caught in the shaver.

Super Handy Device!
I absolutely HATE when my clothes start to pill, but this little device is perfect for taking care of that! It gently shaves off fuzz without snagging the fabric. It works best on bigger bumps though (knit sweaters, hoodies, sweat pants) - if a thin cotton shirt is just slightly pilled all over, this will only do so much. Easy to store and easy to clean out- I love it!
