After regularly de-pilling my knitwear and a bouclé coat for three years, there is no contest for best de-piller. It’s the clothes fuzz shaver with a triangular head in the collection below. I’ve had mine for years, and it’s still going strong. It removes the fuzz effectively, but prepare to clean up afterwards, because the fuzz goes everywhere. It rained shocking pink, citron, and turquoise fuzz all over Yorkies Sam and Jo before I realized this was happening.

I’ve found that the tool works best on wool and cashmere knitwear, but is sometimes a little harsh for man-made fibres. I haven’t used it on cotton knitwear because my 100% cotton knitwear does not pill. If you’re looking for a handy de-piller, keep this one on your radar.
