What's your preferred method for removing pills? I've seen some contraptions out there for de-fuzzing sweaters, and it's also occurred to me that an electric razor could be used. What works best, in your experience? Different methods for different fibers? Thanks!

1. Pick 'em off manually and gently. Eventually the short fibers that cause the pilling decrease and the pilling slows down or stops. (Eventually can be a long time.)

2. Avoid super-soft, loosely spun yarn.

I used to use one of those de-piling gadgets that shaved them off. I put a hole in a sweater with it, so went back to a simple cheap razor.
