Sorta OT -- Sweater stone versus sweater shaver
Has any one used both and have a preference?

Here is an example of the sweater stone

and these are various battery/electric sweater shavers

I'm wanting to use it more for things like sweatshirts and other actual fabrics, not handknit things.

I have the stone and it does get some of it off, but it takes patience (which I lack terribly) so I don't really use it too much...

Not much help, sorry.

Oh, yeah, I did once use the shaver years ago and it was crap. But maybe there's something new that's better...

My sweater shaver... worst $3.99 I ever spent at the grocery store.

I've not tried the sweater stone, but am curious now. I'd never heard of that before.

For my felting projects (which prompted me to purchase said sweater shaver), I've given up and gone for the more expedient and useful tool, the disposable double-blade ladies' razor. I can defuzz a handbag in under two minutes.
