So yesterday I faced up to the fact that my favorite cardigan (Drops 103-1 v.2) was looking really ratty. All pilled and fuzzed and matted up — the stereotypical crazy cat lady hand knit sweater. Not the look I was going for, surprisingly enough. Armed with a new super sweater shaver, I got to work.
And turned this:
Just trust me on the fuzz.
So much better. Four hours and 17 grams of fluff later (oh yeah, I weighed the fluff!), my cardigan is looking spiffy and new. The wool has a very lovely sheen that I had completely fogotten about, but it comes through once the pilling is removed. In future, I’m going to try and keep the upper hand in the fuzz situation.
