How To

Product Spotlight | Sweater Comb vs. Sweater Stone

Aug 31, 2020

Fall is officially here! Cue the merino turtlenecks, cashmere scarves and gloves, woolen throws, and all other cozy fabrics that keep us oh-so warm when bearing the brisk temperature. As these pieces offer us much needed relief from the elements, we can’t help but wear them again and again…and again! Now, cue the pesky pills.

Contrary to popular belief, pills are caused by wearing (rather than washing)! When fibers loosen, they form little balls, which tend to appear on loosely woven woolens, knitted synthetics, and blends. These pills commonly occur in areas of friction, such as cuffs, hems, and where arms rub along sides.

Luckily, we have not one, but TWO de-pilling tools that will maintain your pieces’ appearances while protecting the fabrics’ integrity. So which tool should you be using to satisfy your de-pilling needs: the Sweater Stone, the Sweater Comb, or both?

The Sweater Comb

CMSPage_Product Spotlight | Sweater Comb vs. Sweater Stone_ONE_SIZE_IMAGE_01

Ideal for delicate knits & fine-gauge woolens, blends, and synthetics

Best used on:

  • Thin, lightweight sweaters
  • Delicate scarves
  • Wool gloves and hats
  • Cashmere robes
  • Pant legs and waistbands
  • Sleeves, cuffs and collars

To use the Sweater Comb, first lay the item on a flat, stable surface. Glide the comb in one direction over target areas, using short, gentle strokes. Bulky knits need only a light touch, while tighter knits can take a more aggressive combing. Remove the collected lint from the screen after each use.

Sweater Stone

Ideal for heavier woolens, thick gauge yarns & upholstery

To be used on:

  • Thick, woolen sweaters
  • Wool Suits
  • Outerwear
  • Blankets
  • Knit furniture & pillows

To use the Sweater Stone, lay the item on a flat, stable surface. Glide the stone in one direction over target areas, using short, gentle strokes. Shake the item out to remove excess pumice. Remove the collected lint from the stone after each use.

What About Lint?

For lint, hair, and dust removal between wearing and washing, the Cashmere Brush is our go-to. Ideal for fine yarns, the Cashmere Brush works gently to rid lingering fuzz and lint while rejuvenating the fibers’ natural oils.
