chill pill

I think it is no coincidence that the following word shares these two definitions.

Pill (noun)
1. Tiresome and disagreeable
2. A fuzzy ball caused by the rolling up of abraded surface fibers


It has been a long battle between me and those irritating little balls that inevitably show up on my knitwear. It doesn't seem to matter how expensive the sweater is, the fiber it is made out of, or the activity I am doing while wearing it..those pills aleays make an appearance.

I have tried everything...sweater shavers, sweater combs, several types lint brushes with unsatifactory results. Even the dry cleaner told me they don't know of a way to deal with it on fine fibers such as cashmere or thin wool.

After doing some research, I came across the Sweater Stone by The Laundress. Although it's $18 price tag seemed a little high, I figured it was worth the gamble if it really worked. In hind sight, it is a small price to pay to get all your sweaters looking new again with very little time and effort. It even worked on my fine knits.

I would highly recommend the Sweater Stone, in my mind it is a small miracle.

They have several other interesting products as well...scented vinegar, horse hair lint brushes...yes, please!
