I had two jackets that had pilling on the sleeves. I was going to get rid of them but decided to buy this instead & now they're wearable again. Then I worked on sweaters & it took care of them too. I love this little machine. It saved me money!

It Really Worked
I will admit, I was not entirely convinced this little machine would save my sweater, but as soon as I fired it up, it took all those annoying little balls of lint, etc. off my sweater! Worth every cent!

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).
