Reusable and long lasting, the Sweater Comb is made with a flexible screen that works well for de-pilling all fine-gauge wool, cashmere, merino, mohair, blends, and more.
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 and where arms rub along sides.
'Woolens' can include fibers such as sheep’s wool, lamb’s wool, cashmere, merino, pashmina, angora, mohair, camelhair, and alpaca, as well as any wool blends and wool-like synthetics made to look like wool, such as acrylic.
