"BETTER THAN ANY FABRIC SHAVER I EVER TRIED"
An Oprah FAVORITE ITEM for her CASHMERE!
Once you've used a Sweater Stone, you'll wonder how you managed without one. There is no better way to keep your fabrics, especially knits like your gorgeous sweaters, looking new and beautiful.
3.5" Long * 2.5" Wide * 1.5" Thick - Covered in White Polished Card to protect your hands
This is the best way to remove those annoying pills and fuzz that you get on sweaters. Don't you hate it? No matter what you do, how much you pay for dry cleaning washable sweaters, you get pills: those unsightly little fuzz balls. They form on everything from woven fabrics, knits and non-woven fabrics like fleece.
Here it is, an all natural way to remove them gently without harming the fabric. Razors take forever, require batteries, and can pull in the fabric and damage it or the blades jam. This can't happen with the amazing SWEATER STONE.
The SWEATER STONE is made of specific type of pumice, a rough volcanic rock. It comes with its own storage box and the top is wrapped in recycled thin brown cardboard to protect your hands while using it. It gently cuts or rubs the pills off with the tiny sharp edges of the pumice. See the Q&A below. If you can't find your answer there, please send me an email and ask me. Use the Ask Seller A Question link on this page.
This product is all natural, U.S.A. made in sheltered workshops by the disabled. Feel good about a product you purchase and use.

Sweater Stone Story: In a cramped basement in Washington in 1986 an idea was started to provide consumers with a natural healthy alternative to using dry cleaners. Sweater Stone was created to restore the look of knits and sweaters without having to expose them to the rigors of dry cleaning. A natural pumice material it quickly lifted away pilling and revitalized knitted garments. Thus, a small cottage industry was born. 18 years later it still remains a cottage industry but it is also able to say it’s graced the shelves of some of Americas and Europe’s finest department stores.
Sweater Stone has received numerous accolades in its lifetime, including a "Best Buy" rating in a leading consumer publication. Our company's focus has been to provide consumers with a quality product at a reasonable price while remaining true to our social and Environmental ideals. Which has led us to utilizing sheltered workshops to assemble our product.
North West Center Industries, a manufacturing company that employs the disabled in downtown Seattle, has been the exclusive producers of our product. By simply using Sweater Stone, the average consumer can save hundreds of dollars on sweater care and avoid harsh chemicals used during dry cleaning.
All in all we've become proud of our company and our product. 100% American made Sweater Stone will last for years. Sweater Stone is a garment grooming aid that you might not need everyday. However, when you do need it, nothing works as well as a Sweater Stone for removing pilling and balling.

Sweater Stone is a natural pumice which has the unique ability to remove pilling from knits with each sharp edge of a broken cell. It actually cuts the filament that holds the pill to the garment while the cell breaks off, removing pilling and restoring the nap on fabrics.
Pilling commonly occurs on a fabric when fibers that are worked loose by rubbing, form little balls. The pills don't fall off because they are held to the fabric by the fibers that still hold firm. Loosely woven and knitted synthetics and blends are the typical candidates for pilling. Usually, it's the stronger synthetic fibers that hold the pill to the surface. Pilling can happen to clothes, blankets, and upholstery fabrics. However, sweaters seem especially vulnerable.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS BEFORE YOU CLICK THE PAY NOW button. This has been a problem lately and people don't tell me until they find the package has gone back. DON'T COUNT ON YOUR USPS ADDRESS FORWARDING to reroute packages. It usually will not do so.
If you have moved or if for any reason, your address on or PayPal is incorrect, and I ship to that address, you will have to pay a second shipping to have the package sent BACK out AFTER it has arrived back here. This will cost you money AND take a lot of time. I only bring this up because it HAS happened many times. I ship RIGHT AWAY.
If you have moved or if for any reason, your address on or PayPal is incorrect or different from where you are, and I ship to that address, you will have to pay a second shipping to have the package sent BACK to me AND out again & sometimes they do not come back but go who-knows-where. This will cost you money AND take a lot of time while we wait to see if they come back - some have been held up somewhere for months before returning or just disappearing from the system. One package sat at the local destination post office for almost 12 months before returning even after I contacted them to send it back. After a couple months, it vanished from tracking system and surprised me 9+ months later when it was in the mail.
I only bring this up because it HAS happened several times recently. I ship RIGHT AWAY so do not buy and then send me a message about the address an hour or more after the sale (even a few minutes can do it sometimes if it is after 12pm EST). Most of the time, someone purchases at say noon (current Eastern Time - Standard or Daylight) and then realizes (about 2 or 3 pm) that they had the wrong address and send me a message. That's fine, but the package has already gone out, so MAKE SURE YOUR & PayPal addresses are up to date and that you select the right one if you have multiples or get the message to me by noon current Eastern Time. You can add a school or vacation address to both and PayPal and make sure you select the right one at check out.
We do not discount multiple purchases because the fee structure charges us per what YOU purchase and we generally only make cents on the transaction.
