We have just discovered this fantastic new product for removing all the pilling and bobbles from your handknits!
Sweater Stone is a natural pumice which has the unique ability to remove pilling from knits with each sharp edge of a broken cell. It actually cuts the filament that holds the pill to the garment while the cell breaks off, removing pilling and restoring the nap on fabrics.
Pilling commonly occurs on a fabric when fibres that are worked loose by rubbing, form little balls. The pills don't fall off because they are held to the fabric by the fibres that still hold firm.
Sweater Stone is made in the USA in sheltered workshops for the disabled.
