Rated 1 out of 5 by Ineffective This device simply doesn't work. You'll be left with a sweater with 95% of the pills you had on your sweater before you spent 30 minutes running the head of this device over it. I can't believe the good reviews. April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So happy with this purchase! This fabric shaver is extremely easy to use and has been incredibly effective in de-pilling my favorite sweaters (all of which vary in texture and thickness.) I am SO glad I didn't opt for a more expensive version! Excellent value! January 30, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Throw it away This product was virtually useless to me. I spent more than an hour using this shaver on my favorite red cardigan. All of the areas I repeatedly shaved look only marginally better, and many of the pills on the sweater were too large to go through the holes of the shaver head for the blades to cut them. December 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous! This was the best investment ever!!!!! I wear a uniform to work and my fabric shaver made it look brand new!!!!!! I've been telling everyone about it! October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this! 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! November 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! November 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fuzz Remover 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. May 3, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent Job 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). April 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing results! 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. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nifty little product!!! I couldn't be happier with this gadget. It's very easy to use, battery operated, and does exactly what it's supposed to. I use it for sweaters when they get those lint balls, yoga pants between the legs when you get fabric fuzzies, and for a stray string here and there to avoid pulling fabric apart. I love, love, love this thing and all the products at the store. Everyone constantly asks me where to get one. March 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't Walk; RUN to get This Fabric Shaver This is going to cost you some money because once you use it and find out how great it is - yes a product that really does what it is supposed to do - you are going to buy one for every mom, sister, and girlfriend in your circle. This inexpensive device has more than paid for itself by bringing new life back to two of my favorite shirts which were bound for the discard bin. Get this shaver. It will save your life! Okay; not really. But it will save your clothes. March 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty Good I used this on my coat. I think it did a pretty good job though I still feel that I don't want to wear the coat anymore. But I definitely saw lint in the waste bin, so I suppose the coat looks better. December 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweater Shaver This works so well. Saves me from buying new sweaters every season. April 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Can't live without it! This little guy is awesome and durable. Shaving the pills off my clothes has kept them looking newer, and feeling more comfortable. I've even used it on my bedding! You do have to be careful to use it on a flat surface though because I have nicked a hole in a sweater. I recommend an ironing board. April 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helped Make My Old Sweater Look Less Ragged I have a 15+ year old cardigan that had a lot of pills. I got this sweater shaver, and it made my sweater almost like new again. The shaver is easy and fun to use. April 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute and Easy to Use My mom got one of these back in the 90's and has used it ever since. I wanted one of my own and this one reminds me of home. Love it! August 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Was skeptical but... I was really pleasantly surprised by how efficient this shaver is. It really pulls all "fuzz" and leaves sweaters looking like new. Have used on wool and cashmere and worked like a charm on both! Finally, you can't beat the price! A must have for everyone who hates fuzzballs!! March 20, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the Price to Save a Shirt I have a few sweaters that have accidentally got thrown in the dryer and this product has definitely helped to shave the fuzzy balls off and give these shirts a newer, higher quality look when I thought they were near the end of their life. Just like a dryer, there's a contraption that collects the lint that needs to be empied after a solid session of fuzz ball collection, otherwise it won't do it's job best. I got scared at first thinking that the motor died shortly after I started using it, but I realized that there was some fabric caught in the was real simple to pop the cover off and get it out...worked just fine after that. A warning however; it can be daunting to use a smaller product like this to cover an entire piece of clothing that might need it...also sometimes it might seem like it'll work better if you if you stretch the fabric a little but DON' might cut a hole in the fabric! Also it's a bit noisy...I thought I could use this as I was sitting at my desk at work but it's awkwardly distracting. December 22, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by quick and useful This is a great product that will make sweaters look like new. Its easy to use as well. The only holdback I have on it, was I read in an article that a sweater stone was better to use, I only bought this because I wasn't sure how the sweater stone worked. All in all it is a great purchase and good value. March 3, 2010

How well would this work on North Face sweaters? In other words polyester...

Asked by: Andiee
I think as long as it is a synthetic fabric or cotton it will work great!
