Best debobbler for cashmere sweaters

9 replies

dryroastcumin · 04/10/2022 16:24

What’ s the safest and most effective way to debobble cashmere sweaters? I’m currently using a comb but it’s very slow-going.The shavers online get very variable reviews and some are apparently designed for sofas rather than jumpers which is probably more shaving power than I need.

I found combs slow and I felt like I was risking stretching the fabric. I buy most of my cashmere from nearlynewcashmere.com who recommended on their site a Phillips battery powered lint remover. I bought one of that recommendation and chuffed with it.

I think I have the same one! It’s really good 👍🏻

I just pinch them off with my fingers.

I also have the Philips shaver - it's fab.

If you pinch them off with your fingers it pulls and stretches all the fibre and seems to make it worse. You also can only get the big ones!

Gently use a metal nit comb: very easy, very cheap and very effective!

Phillips shaver here too! I try not to use it too often though as I’m worried it’s taking a little off everywhere, not just the bobbles.

I use my ladyshave, clears all bobbles & never pulls.
