Bought this to depill a hat I made out of Wool of the Andes Bulky and it barely took anything off at all. The poor hat is still pilly and aged looking after spending 15 minutes with this tool on it.

This works wonderfully. I was doubtful that something so cheap would do the job, but it does! It makes my old knits and sweaters look new again. Even things that fuzzed up when they were accidentally thrown in the dryer. Just don't press too hard - the little metal head is flexible and too much pressure will push it into the blade mechanism.

This worked pretty well at first, but then the metal dented, which meant the blade could no longer spin and my sweaters would get snagged. I would recommend spending a bit more for a sturdier model.

Ate my knitting :( Perhaps my "gently" was not gentle enough or maybe lace weight yarn makes a difference but the pill pulled into the blades and cut a 6-stitch hole.

I used this on two sweaters: one with serious pilling, and one with minor pilling. It removed almost nothing from the very pilled sweater, and reduced the pilling on the other by about a third. If you have very lightly pilled materials, this might work for you. If you are trying to depill anything at all serious, this won't work.
