Giriş

The day-to-day washing and wearing of sweaters causes piling, or balling and fraying of the fibers that compose the sweater. Pilling is visually unappealing, but more importantly, it can lead to additional fraying of the garment. By removing the pilling you can help lengthen the life of your favorite Patagonia sweater. And we all know that old sweaters are the coziest.

  2. Working along the grain of the sweater, gently brush the sweater with the sweater stone. As you use the stone you may notice a funny smell, that is a natural part of the stone which is released as it crumbles away. You will also notice small pieces of debris, as the stone cuts away pills it also breaks apart slowly. Simply shake out the sweater when you are done to remove debris.

I also have used a disposable razor to shave pills and fuzz off of Patagonia sweaters and capilene - it worked really well. Just lightly run it down the sweater. If any fuzz is persistent, do the same but perpendicular to the first direction you used. It made my sweater and capilene pants look like new again!

Great post, and I want to recommend you a page of Fabric pilling test, which may help you a lot.

Yup, right there with AE3, disposable razor: they last a long time, and they can be re-sharpened a bit by shaving a piece of glass (nothing is disposable). This sweater stone looks kinda like pumice. I’m curious about it, but I wouldn’t buy one.
