Save money on sweaters making them last as long as possible.
Over time, the yarn used to knit sweaters will form fuzz balls at points of
friction. You can remove these by carefully shaving them off with a razor
blade. Be careful not to cut the yarn, or the sweater will unravel.
Keep this in mind when you are shopping for thrift friendly used sweaters.
some additional frugal tips to save money on
- Store sweaters on shelves so
they won't stretch out.
- Be careful about putting
sweaters in the dryer. Depending on the fiber , you may need to dry them
laying flat on a towel.
- Buy a few sweaters in neutral
colors to go with everything in your wardrobe.
- Never buy a sweater with a
loose weave. It won't last long.
