Much of my clothing were starting to get pills, so I was desperate to find something, anything, that would remove them- as otherwise, I would have to spend a good deal of money on a new wardrobe.

I tried peeling them off with tape, and rolling them off with lint rollers. These only removed a few superficial lints- the stubborn pills remained. I tried using a vacuum shaver. The shaver worked on some types of fabric but not others, but left holes in all of them.

Resigned to buying a new wardrobe, I brought the SWEATER STONE not really expecting anything. To my delight, it actually works!

I would not say my clothes look like new, but they look much better. Be warned, though, if your garments are full of pills, or if you are very particular in wanting to remove as many of the pills as possible, shaving with the sweater shaver can awhile. I sometimes spend a couple of hours with one very pilly shirt. But this is still far less than the time it would take to remove all these pills with my fingers (the only other method I know that really works- I also spent hours with all the other methods I describe above but they never did end up working.) Furthermore, shaving with the sweater stone leaves my garments with a fresher look than picking with my fingers as it removes a good deal of fuzz as well the pills.

A point to note however is that the SWEATER STONE is rather messy. Unlike vacuum shavers which include a collection place for the pills, and lint rollers/tape in which the pills stick to the roller/tape, the pills simply fall all over your table/floor when using this device, along with crumbled bits of the stone itself. I recommend shaving with the SWEATER STONE on top of newspapers away from fans, wind, etc.

I am actually writing this review based on using the sweater stone my mother bought years and years ago. After moving away from home, I missed hers so much I am buying my own. Just gently rub it across the surface of pilled fabric, and it restores a smooth newer look. This works much better than any sweater shavers I've tried and will last for years with no batteries required. Consumer Reports also gave it a "Best Buy" rating.

I will add that it does have a slight odd odor while you use it, but that does not affect the clothes. You also will want to use a lint roller to collect pills and lint once you're done. I've had one synthetic stretchy sweater it didn't work on, but it's been great on most things, including pilly sheets.

I have been fighting with pills on various articles of clothing for years. I have tried various methods, but nothing really worked that well. Someone told me about pumice stones, so I did a little research. I discovered the Sweater Stone on Amazon and elsewhere, but decided to just go buy a pumice stone at the drug store.

I found a small one and was able to get the pills off of a pair of Champion sweatpants. They are the worst. They start pilling almost immediately and never stop. But it was small and difficult to get at the right angle. It I was not careful, I would get the leading edge too close to the fabric and it would dig it.

I used that stone for several weeks (those Champion pants are an endless source of pills). Every time I used it, I had trouble getting at just the right angle.

I decided to try the Sweater Stone. When it arrived, I noticed that it had a different feel. The one from the store was gray and oddly shaped. The Sweater Stove is perfectly rectangular. It has a cardboard cover that makes it easier to hold. The shape is also better for de-pilling. The drugstore stone has an irregular shape that was difficult to use and it was too narrow to get a good grip on.

I really like the plastic case. The drugstore stone leaves grit on the shelf. The Sweater Stove case keeps things much tidier.

Be sure to use it outside or where you will be vacuuming. As someone else said, it is messy. It produces a lot of lint and grit. I do mine on the back patio. I sometimes do it on the ironing board where I can get the fabric tight. Then I vacuum the floor.

There is definitely a technique to using the Sweater Stone. It didn't work that well at the start.

The fabric needs to be fairly taut.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the sweater stone...there is NO other product on the market that even comes close to this stone!! I've owned it for a few months now and have used it a million times. I can honestly say this little stone has improved my sales! I run an online eBay store where I sell very nice, previously worn & awesome vintage clothing. I stand behind every item I sell and give refunds for any reason, which means I have to be completely confident that everything offer is in excellent condition! In the past I would often find awesome clothes that were perfect in every way except they had too much piling. Before the sweater stone I would pass them up but now I'm able to buy these items, bring them home and gently use the 'stone' to revive their appearance to nearly 'new' condition. I'm then able to list them on my site with confidence that others will love them too (have yet to have had one returned)!
The sweater stone is not just for sweaters! It can literally be used on most any type of material, knit tops, pants, skirts, t-shirts, cotton, some polyester, etc to remove the piling that occurs from wear & tear or laundering (do not use on any type of material that snags i.e. silk, rayon, beaded, sequined, etc). Works great on those super soft, knit tops, dresses etc (like jersey knit) that begin looking shabby after one too many washes.
PRECAUTIONS: 1) A gentler touch is better 2) There is a technique to using on 'thinner' material; Practice first on something you don't care about 3) Works best if the material can be held taut - having a 2nd pair of hands is helpful 4) DO NOT place the item you're 'stoning' on a hard or bumpy surface, Lay it on something soft with a little give (like a bed) 5) Always place padding between buttons, zippers etc.
