Knit Picks Lint Shaver and removing fuzz
A large percentage of the projects that I have done, and the ones I have planned are felted. I've been trying to come up with a way to get rid of that aura of fuzz around my FOs. When I saw the new Lint Shaver at Knit Picks, I thought that it would be perfect if I could use that. I am not at all impressed with it. I realize that lint and fuzz are two very different technical terms, so I might not be using it for the intended purpose. I'm going to return it. Will the Sweater Stone do what I am needing? I suppose I can just stick with disposable razors, but shaving my knitting seems to dull them pretty fast.

I think both of those are really designed to get rid of pills rather than extra fuzziness.

I was afraid you were going to say that. Now I just have to decide what to put my credit towards instead.

Amanda, I use one almost exactly like that on my felted items ... and it works great. This will sound REALLY silly ... but did you take the clear plastic "lid" off the shaver part of it? I thought mine had quit working, changed the batteries ... and FINALLY realized that I didnt take the cover off. I have also used a regular disposable shaver to "clean up" those felted fuzzies!

I did take the lid off, and after 5 minutes with it I had shaved off an itty bittty little puff of fuzz. (about as much as if I had grabed hold and yanked a bit off) Maybe it is some other form of operator error.

For cleaning up my felted items I use my Wahl pet trimmer or any cheap electric razor. It really finishes the item off nicely. I don't like all the fuzz.

In a pinch scissors and razors work okay. They are just slower.
