Need help, was wearing a nice reiss knit that someone close to me bought, had a band practice today and wrecked it, the strap on the guitar has caused some fuzzy bobble damage, my apologise as i don't know the technical term for this Oops

anyway can i sort this out, as i saw her later today and she was pissed that i wrecked a perfectly good xmas present in the space of 2 days…

and i kno she spent a lot of time/effort/money on that gift.

thanx again

you can buy a de-bobbler from most clothes stores, it just simply takes off the bobbles

if its not 100% natural fibres (i.e. wool, cotton or mix of both) unfortunately my experience is that these non-natural fabcric jumpers ALWAYS bobble.

Seeing as its Reiss its probabbly %100 wool. But yes you can use de-bobbler.

Thats where you might be wrong, Reiss like to charge high prices but dont always use good materials.

they probably don't use the high quality Turkish craftsmen that Dior uses either.

Use caution with them f'kin de-bobble machines.

I used one on a part cashmere knit and it removed quite a few bobbles but put loads of pulls in it. Just ragged the bobbles and turned em to pulls. Sad

The one I used was a remington fuzz away…shite

I was just wondering the same thing, some of my Smedley knits and the H&m smedleyesque knits have started to bobble. Thanks!

or a comb:

less vicious/prone to eating a hole in your jumper than the electric ones, though also more faff

shaver is better as combing just creates a thinner brushed up layer of fluff after on finer fabrics, mohair cashmere ect
