Pilling is an unsightly surface defect of textiles caused by wear. It happens when washing and wearing of fabrics causes loose fibers to begin to push out from the surface of the cloth, and, over time, abrasion causes the fibers to develop into small spherical bundles, This normally happens on the parts of clothing that receive the most abrasion in day-to-day wear, such as the collar, cuffs, and around the thighs and back of trousers.
The Tescom Compact Pill Remover Fabric Shaver KD600 is a device that can be conveniently used to remove such defects from tights, leggings, and wool clothing. It can remove fuzz, fluff, hairballs, link, bobbles, and pills. It is so lightweight and slim that you can use it while still wearing tights and other clothing items
Since a pill is a part of the original fabric, it is likely that a hole will form when you shave off pills a few times from the same area, so it is not a permanent solution.
This small, lightweight, portable and east to use device, that runs on two AA batteries (not included), and will cost you $39.
