Knowing how to get rid of pilling from sweaters is slightly different from getting rid of lint. If your sweater has pilled, it means that all the fuzzy little fibers have stuck together into balls that won’t come away once loosely combed.
To get rid of the pills manually, you can use a razor blade or scissors to cut off each pill individually. It can be quite a lengthy process and you should be careful not to cut the fabric itself. If you want more convenience, you can try getting a fabric shaver. The shaver is an electric machine that removes the pill automatically as you drag it across the sweater.
Whatever method you choose, always ensure that you allow the sweater to dry and take it off the body before you start to remove the pills.
