How to stop a fluffy scarf shedding?

(5 Posts)

I have a beautiful blush pink scarf from H&M. It's supersoft and cosy, but it sheds fluff everywhere and it's stopping me from wearing it. It's artificial fibres.

Any tips on stopping it shedding please?

I bought a lovely wrap and it did the same when I wore it with my long black wool coat. I'm thinking of washing it to see if that will remove enough of the loose fibres to stop it shedding.

You could try freezing it.
It works with angora and mohair, I think. It might work with artificial fibers as well?

Thanks. Would I need to wet it before freezing?

Nope, at least I don't wet it, just wrap them up in a plastic back and chuck next my lasagna ;)
