Yes it’s back at long last! 

In a world full of expensive cutting edge technology, it’s comforting to know that there are still some simple gadgets that don’t cost the earth and  really are effective.

The sweater stone is one of them. This simple natural pumice stone will catch and remove all those irritating little pills ( balls) on the surface of your clothes with very little effort and more importantly NO BATTERIES! 

It’s true, I’d tried the razors, combs, brushes, and battery operated gadgets all of which promised a good result, but quite frankly after various attempts, one made holes, one was just impossible to use, and one just used up too many batteries,  I gave up trying. Then I discovered the ‘Sweater stone’ – what a great little product! It really works,

The sweater stone costs 12€,  (available now in our E-shop ‘knitting accessories’  click below )

This is one gift that will truly be appreciated by everyone who receives it!

 

 

I do have a few tips and suggestions:

Be gentle! It is abrasive so you shouldn’t be too heavy

handed or enthusiastic – better to repeat the operation

rather than ruin your favourite jumper!

Use it on natural fibres not synthetics!

Don’t use it on very fine or delicate

woollens/fabrics

It is quite light and fragile so every time you

drop it on a hard floor you’ll damage the corners

I prefer to wash the garment first as this removes some

of the pilling.

And I do find it easier to use whilst I’m wearing the garment, using one hand to pull the garment downwards to create a bit of tension, and gently scraping the surface as needed.
