Lilly Brush Love


I thought I'd share a little product love today, for something that has been making my life a little easier. I've had some stashed Malabrigo laceweight for ages, and think that some lightweight knits are in my very near future, to start using some of it up.  Now some of you already know that Malabrigo is known for being crazy-insane soft; but it also is quick to pill. I have a gleaner, which is great, but sometimes I feel a little too rough for single spun yarns. Enter the Lilly Brush, which is my latest obsession- it works magic on Malabrigo!

This is my geodesic cardigan, which has seen a lot of play and subsequently was looking a little ratty. but now it's all soft and lovely perfect again.


The brush is also pretty kick ass as a lint brush in general, which is awesome for someone with as much cat hair in her life as I have. It doesn't work on fiber blends that have nylon/synthetics (sorry sock yarn lovers!), but for cashmere sweaters and most of my hand knits, it's perfection. I'm not alone in my Lilly Brush love, either- Real Simple has a lot of love for it, too.


Just thought I'd share! I've got some new knitting to share with you soon....

Just bought this at a yarn store and I am glad to see you recommend it. I will give it a try.
