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?
