Sweater shaver....
This is a quote from Jan from another post.....

Quote:
Any yarn can pill..wools pill, too. I think it's just something we have to accept and buy a sweater shaver.

Ok, Ive put it off long enough..what brand and where to get one of these things?
I dont think ive ever even seen one, let alone use one...any tips for that would be great too.

Thanks,
Melissa

I actually haven't used one either, but I want one. I've heard that the cheap ones just don't hold up so I've been kind of looking around.

Joann's has a heavy duty one ... I think Dritz ... I used my 40% coupon and it was around $8.00. They have a different one at their online store, it is $11.99.

I do alot of felting and use it for the crazy fuzzies some yarn makes when felting. I have never really used it for "pills".
