the lilly brush

Save our sweaters?  Yes, please!  I need something to do just that.  I get so bummed when my sweaters pill.  Who doesn't!  Especially our hand knit beauties.  All that hard work, time and love, and then they can look old and worn with just a few wears.  Ugh.  
I have tried several things to de-pill but when I tried the Lilly Brush, I fell in love.  It's so gentle.  No razor to cut the fibers.  Just a gentle stroke and off come the "balls".  
I tried to photograph one of my "balliest" hand knit sweaters.  I also have cashmere and for some reason, I feel like the newer cashmere sweaters pill easier than my old ones.  
Truly.  This thing is my new favorite toy!
The Lilly Brush works on lint and removing pet hair, too.   It can be used on all natural fibers including cotton, wool, cashmere, angora, hemp and alpaca.  It's hand washable, fits in your purse, and will last for years.  AND, it comes in two colors.

The sweet peeps over at the Lilly Brush would like to save your sweaters!  They would like to giveaway a lilly brush to one of my readers.  Please leave a comment before Monday, March 11, 5 pm EST, and I'll have the random generator choose a number/name.

And if you just can't wait to get those sweaters looking like new you can order one here.  You'll be having fun in no time!  (I pretty much think every knitter should have a lilly brush.  And non knitters, too!)

Enjoy your weekend!

this looks amazing! i've tried one of the sweater stones and one of the shavers and neither worked very well. I'd love to have this work as well as you say it does!

I NEEEEED this! All those gadgets with razors scare me. I don't want sharp objects near my knits!

I've noticed that about new cashmere... I think it may be because the cashmere is not of the same quality as it used to be: the market is flooded with the stuff, so the threads are probably being made with shorter fibres just to keep up with the demand.
