Love it or hate, with colder temperatures comes the arrival of sweater weather. That means more time spent wearing our chunkiest knits and super soft layers, which can wreak havoc on delicate fabrics like wool or cashmere if they aren’t properly cared for.
While pilling is a natural process for many heavier knit fabrics, that doesn’t mean that clothes are destined for the bin once they begin to show signs of wear. Instead, give your favourite pieces a refresh with a lint remover or fabric shaver that will have them looking as good as new.
One version found on Amazon Canada is an ideal choice this season, and to make things even better, right now it’s on sale.

What is it?
The Beautural Lint Remover Fabric Shaver and Sweater Defuzzer is one affordable device that helps to keep your clothes looking their best, and rings in at just $18. Normally priced at $20, this little fabric shaver quickly and effectively removes lint from well-worn garments.
A durable metal blade spins at 9,000 RPM to gently remove fuzz, lint and fluff from sweaters, upholstery, and more. This cordless fabric shaver also features two speeds and can be used with its protective case on or off, depending on the type of fabric you’re working with.
A key feature of this fabric shaver is that it automatically collects dust and fuzz in a built-in compartment, which empties out with just a quick click. The Beautural Lint Remover even comes with two extra blades in order to replace when they start to wear out, and a handy carrying case to keep everything safely stored away.
What shoppers are saying
Backed by more than 27,600 reviews worldwide, this sweater shaver has earned an impressive 4.4 star rating thanks to its easy use and effective results.
“This fabric shaver saved my chairs! I am so happy with the results,” raved one reviewer. “It’s a little machine, fits well in hand. Two speeds is handy. Depending on how much pilling has occurred it does take some time to shave and you have to empty it often, but it is highly satisfying to use and see the results.”
“I had a pair of fleece-lined tights that were COVERED with little lint balls that I had given up on removing because there were so many and nothing else worked,” said another. “This shaver completely removed ALL of them. They look brand new again. It's extremely satisfying.”
Due to its small size, this fabric shaver does need to be emptied periodically, but that hasn’t stopped reviewers from praising its “unbelievably effective” results.
“This is very easy to use, and made my two favourite sweaters look brand new...It does take some time to de-pill an entire sweater, but I just hold the sweater on my lap while watching TV,” reads one review.
If you don’t mind spending a little time to breathe new life into your favourite sweaters, cushions and more, this little fabric shaver is a must-have product. At only $18, the small investment will save you money in the long run by keeping your clothes and decor looking fresh for years to come.
