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 likeyour gorgeous sweaters, looking new and beautiful.
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 to 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 a 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, made in the U.S.A. in sheltered workshops by the disabled. Feel good about a product you purchase and use.
Read all about the sweater stone:
Sweater Stone is a convenient way to remove pilling and balling and renew the look of knits and sweaters.
Its versatility allows use one a wide range of fabrics, including furniture and polar fleece. An all natural product made from post consumer recycled materials, Sweater Stone will last up to ten years under normal use.
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.

This is a pet friendly home. I take a lot of precautions to protect all my items, but if this is a concern for you PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE.
TO GET SALE PRICES you must purchase all items on the same PayPal/ transaction.
PayPal (e-checks, credit & debit cards accepted via PayPal, due to policy changes.All sales MUST BE PAID within 7 days of sale ending. If not paid within the 7 days, I reserve the right to cancel the sale, relist the item and file an non-paying buyer alert with and to leave the proper response.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT ADDRESS ON YOUR AND PAYPAL ACCOUNTS! 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.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS BEFORE YOU CLICK THE PAY NOW button. 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 happenedmany times. I ship RIGHT AWAY.
Sunday Night through Saturday Morning (2a.m.), paid sales usually go out the next morning if they are in and paid by midnight, sometimes 2a.m. or 3a.m. I am a night owl and am up til 5 to 8a.m. getting your purchases out to you RIGHT AWAYShipping
UPS IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
Shipping costs may include a small handling charge.
Local pickups also pay the handling costs. Local Pick-up almost ALWAYS Available. For Mailers/Envelopes/Bags/Shipping Supply Items pickups pay all Shipping & Handling charges BUT we WILL HAVE to meet in a public place such as a coffee shop near my home as I cannot drive far.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT ADDRESS ON YOUR AND PAYPAL ACCOUNTS! This has been a problem lately and people don't tell me until they find the package has gone back or into the netherworld. 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 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 EasternTime. You can add a school or vacation address to both and PayPaland make sure you select the right one at check out.
Combined shipping NOT AVAILABLE for Mailers/Envelopes. Bubble Mailers don't weigh a lot but they're bulky; Poly mailers don't take a lot of space but they are dense and weigh quite a bit.
As for not being able to combine shipping, anything over 13 ounces has to either go USPS Priority or Parcel Post. Parcel Post often costs more (at lower weights) than Priority and can take 10 days or more for delivery, so I don't bother with it. At one point, the package becomes either too heavy or too large to go USPS First Class, but shipping can't make that determination and will continue to charge at the minimum set price/classification. This can mean losing as much as $5.00 a package and too much of that would put any of us out of business. So we would either have to set everything at the higher priority charges, or we can sell and ship each package individually at the lower first class charges or flat rate charges, whichever is applicable.
You can change this by emailing software engineers (via any email) and request the development of a program that better suits the needs of their buyers and sellers for say multiple packages from a listing.
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.
**MANY MAILERS are not able to be combined & so ship in separate packages, especially when shipped to places west of the Mississippi River, especially to the West Coast states, AK, HI, PR and territories. For example, a 50 pack of my #0 bubble mailers may go in 1 Priority package to East Coast or states near Michigan but may go in 2 First Class packages to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam (& other U.S. territories inc. Phillipines) and states west of the Mississippi River.
All domestic first class package (not letter/envelope)& priority have delivery confirmation numbers.
If you MUST have something shipped Priority Mail, please request an invoice, add the notein the note to sellersection or email me via messages immediately (the question link at the bottom of the page) & be prepared to pay the zone & weight charges. Priority is usually an option on shipping. If you add priority and we normally ship that way, we WILLresolve that with and will refund that to you.

This stone saved my favorite sweatshirt, thought so badly and painfully pilled, inside & out, that it was unwearable.
