fuzzy sweater
I finished my son's sweater and he loves it . He wears it often but now it is fuzzy where he rubs his arm against his body. How do you get rid of this and when you do does it keep coming back?

He can shave it with either a sweater stone or a simple disposable razor. The amount of pilling will usually decrease over time, or he can just keep shaving it.

I'm glad he's wearing it, though!!

Thanks! I phoned my LYS and they have a sweater stone. I don't know if it is that brand but I will go and buy one.
