Everything old is, sorta like, new again!

cashmere_throwClearly I have been living under some sort of rock. Am I the only person who didn’t know this thing existed!?!? I mean, “technically”, I suppose I knew it was out there but I never actually owned one and nobody ever mentioned it to me before. I am totally and completely devastated that I have lived so long with so many pilled sweaters and even more cashmere baby sweaters and blankets that I have tossed over the years.  You know what I am talking about right?  Those little balls of fluff that gather within minutes of wearing a new sweater. Anyway I went to Amazon — read the reviews — and the Izumi Sweater Shaver came in the mail the other day. Needless to say, I could not put the thing down.  I figured it would work wonders on kids sweaters and baby blankets, so I just wanted to share as clearly people were holding out on me!   It’s made in Japan so it looks pretty cool, if not a bit sinister. So if like me, you are sick of all the nice things you buy looking beat up so quickly –  this might be the answer to your prayers.   It really does work.

I always use the cashmere comb from Brora which also works wonders!

That thing indeed sounds addictive. I definitely have some cashmere pieces that need shaving!

Is it possible to get this one in Europe/UK? I noticed on the amazon.com link that they would not ship this to the UK but am desperate for a pilling solution that works – the John Lewis shaver I tried broke after two weeks!

Thanks, Fee
