Is your sweater fuzz affecting your swag?
If your sweaters are starting to get little balls of fuzz (pilling) all over them, don’t worry! There are a few things that you can do to get your swag back:
First off, you need to know your sweater’s material. Check out the list below that describes different types of materials. The type of your sweater’s material also affects how you wash it and care for it. Obviously if you spend a lot less, on say, an acrylic sweater instead of a more durable expensive wool sweater, you will have more pilling with the acrylic sweater.
Most of the time, pilling will occur near your armpits or other places where you are actively rubbing the sweater against something.
Ways to get the fuzz off of your sweaters:
- Lay your sweater flat. Take a household item, such as a disposable razor, steel wool, or sand paper, and scrape the pills gently off of your sweater.
- Purchase a sweater stone or scraper at Piedmont Cleaners to scrape the pills off of your sweater.
- Bring your sweater in to get “de-pilled” and dry cleaned at Piedmont Cleaners.
