3 Days Till Winter In the Northern Hemisphere
A month after acquiring my first camel sweater, wool pilling proved bothersome. Unable in recent years to find a decently priced sweater comb, I attempted several self-made household remedies for pilling removal. I first combed the material in a downward motion using a small-toothed hair comb earning the neutral piece marks of improvement. Then I attempted to trim off the pilling cloud using small scissors. I was sure that this remedy combined with a thorough lint brush rolling would be more than adequate but unfortunately only scored 4 on a 1-5 scale. When friend V.W. shared his secrets on sweater care, I was taken aback when he revealed that a cheap handheld razor was all that was needed. He couldn’t have been more correct and I couldn’t have been more ecstatic about sweater’s stellar condition.
