I have brought a lovely new angora mix cardi and worn it only a few times - it has bobbles under the arms/boob area - whats the best way to get them off. I am sure I have heard of some type of tool for doing it?!
I had one similar to the one dexter linked and it just wasn't up to the job (and smelt of burning when used for more than a minute). Robert Dyas are doing a slightly more robust one called 'Bobble Off' which I've had better sucess with. About £5 too.
I have that John Lewis tool, it's not great tbh. It just doesn't catch most of the bobbles, especially larger ones. I recently got a special bobble grabber from the dry cleaning shop - it's like a handle with a rough pad attached that the bobbles cling to, and it's a bit better. But most effective is a normal plastic comb - lie the woolly flat, on a firm surface and hold the comb flat and scrape the bobbles off.
