I'm sure someone can recommend a good/favorite gadget to remove pilling on a sweater. Whether a store bought sweater or one I've knitted, those little things pop up somewhere. Thanks

Very inexpensive rechargeable clipper! Better than pulling the pill off! Pulling the pill off also puls fibers from the fabric, setting up another opportunity for new pills

I don’t think the Gleener works any better than anything else on the market and I’ve tried just about everything I can find.

I have a set of clippers in my closet for at least ten years because I was afraid to use them on my DH. Now I have a reason to open the box. Thank you.

Works great. Just keep the plate parallel to the fabric!

It is actually cheaper than the gleener

I bought a small high quality electric razor to “de-pill” but the teeth seem to get caught in the fabric. I guess I must be holding it at the wrong angle.

I really like The Sweater Stone. Many yarn shops (on line and brick & mortar) carry them. I got mine at Eddie Bauer!

I got mine from Amazon, lots to choose from.
