Alias is right - the cheaper stuff feels wonderful but pills easily because it is made from shorter strands (and often from ground up scrap). Go to any store for a fabric shaver if you get this problem. Expensive cashmeres outlast the cheap stuff by a lonnnnnnnnnnng way because they use longer strands - feels rough at first but over time will break and get softer.

Years ago somebody gave me a fabric shaver. Â I have it right here. Â It's called a Singer "Fuzy-Wuz." I have used this device from time-to-time and it seems to work well. Â But one worries it is damaging or weakening the fabric. Â Is it? Â And I never have put it on a really fine garment. Â Could I?
Not sure what kind you have? The kind I was referring to takes two batteries and has a flat metal shield with holes in it and the blades spinning underneath - takes off pills quite well without damage - use it all the time on pill prone sportcoats and such :-)
