By washing and wearing your sweater, small pills can appear. Usually on the sides, under the arms and at the bottom of the sweater. This is completely normal when wearing natural fibers.
To remove these pills, take a sweater razor (if electric, with the safety grill), place your sweater on a flat surface, and slide the razor into the direction of knitting to remove lint.
Do not press too hard and do not do it too often, you risk damaging the stitch and making holes!
Do not hang your stitches on a hanger, this could deform the garment. Instead, store them in your cupboards, carefully folded.
Sometimes small threads stick out from your sweater. Do not panic. Gently bring the loose thread back inside the garment and tie a knot. Do not cut the thread.
