I always thought sweater shavers were such a great idea. Well actually sweaters that don't pill are a great idea, but we can't have everything. I bought this cashmere Vince cardigan at the TJ Maxx in Miami last year, thinking it was a great deal from a quality label. Until the pilling started. I didn't wear it for months because the fur balls were so bad. Then I found a sweater shaver at Walgreens. I went to town on the cardi and had to empty the fur ball receptacle 3 times. I was just finishing up when I realized I had shaved through the sweater in several places. Luckily I'm decent with a needle and thread, but now I know to proceed with caution when handling my sweater shaver.
