Why the Cocoknits Depill Tool is Unique

Many depill tools remove sweater pills by scraping them off, which removes more fiber than necessary and can abrade your knits. Razor blades work well to cleanly remove pills, but can potentially cut through your fabric - or your hand! Unsatisfied with these options, Julie set out to create something new: the Fuzz Off Comb. This patent-pending design is more gentle, efficient, and precise than typical tools, while being safe and easy to use. Watch the video above to hear Julie explain how.

The Details


Comb Design

The comb end of the Fuzz Off Comb is actually a sharp razor blade surrounded by a protective metal "cage." The blade underneath easily slices away sweater pills while the cage protect your knits, skin, or any other surface from being cut. So you can shave with confidence, knowing only pilling and other fiber buildup will be removed!


Sustainable Materials

The body of the Fuzz Off Comb is made entirely of PLA, a 100% biodegradable material made from fermented plant waste. The metal blade is removable and recyclable. Knit friendly and planet friendly!


Precise Functionality

The slim shape of the Fuzz Off Comb allows you to easily work on tricky areas like pockets and underarms. You can even get into the nooks and crannies of the most detailed pattern stitches like cables and ribbing. Since it behaves similarly to a razor blade, it's most efficient when held at an angle to the surface of your garment, as opposed to perpendicularly. For a full demonstration, watch How to Remove Sweater Pills.


Compact Size

The body acts as a cover for the comb and folds up to a compact 4.875" X 1" X .375" (12.5 cm X 2.5 cm X 1 cm), so it's the perfect travel size for sweater care on-the-go. Keep it in a purse or pocket, or in an Accessory Roll!



Hi Nancy,
