The best device ever for removing pilling from fabric is on sale right now.
SALE ALERT | This is hardly the time to suggest that you rush out and buy stocking stuffers with another 354 shopping days left until Christmas, but we’ve decided to do a little pre-Christmas shopping at Eddie Bauer this week because they’re having a sale on our all-time favourite Christmas stocking gift, the Sweater Stone and we plan to stock up. If you’ve ever put one of these tools to work, you’ll know why we’re excited; if you haven’t, you might want to listen up.
For the uninitiated, a Sweater Stone is a rectangular block of natural pumice that removes unattractive pilling on sweaters, workout wear, blankets, upholstery—whatever—with a few quick light-handed swipes. The stone works miracles on the balls of fluff that accumulate on wool (particularly cashmere), cotton and stretchy synthetics used in athletic apparel, leaving these fabrics renewed.
At $14.95, Eddie Bauer’s sweater stone, which can last 10 years, is a good deal (The Laundress brand of chichi household cleaning supplies sells theirs for $18), but at a sale price of $7.47, it’s a steal. —Annabel Lee
