If sweaters are used frequently, the fibers that make up the knit structure can get loose and fuzzy. Unlike pilled sweaters, the fibers in fuzzy sweaters don’t form small balls. Instead, they remain as loose, individual fibers that make the whole sweater appear fuzzy. You can use a professional sweater restoration service, or you can learn how to get rid of the fuzz yourself.
To get rid of fuzz from a sweater, you require a fine-toothed sweater comb. Lay your sweater flat and stretch it gently such that the material is slightly taut. Hold the comb at a 45-degree angle to the sweater and drag it lightly down the surface while taking care not to snag the teeth in the kit. The comb gathers up the fuzzy bits thus helping make the sweater appear tidier.
