Got a beloved sweater that just isn’t what it used to be? Maybe you hit a snag. Maybe you thought the bobbles and pilling on your favorite pullover or cardigan were forever. Well guess what? Your favorite cozy sweater is not beyond repair! Learn how to fix these blemishes, so you can keep right on wearing your favorite sweater.
1. “Bobbles” or “Pilling”
Whatever you call it, if your old sweater or thrift-store treasure needs a little facelift, you can do it yourself — fast! All you need are some of those velcro rollers (check the dollar store). You can try a razor too, but one wrong move can do more harm than good. Just lay the sweater on a flat surface and roll the curler on the part that’s pilled (often under the sleeves). Go slowly, and watch it pull those blemishes right off.
