View Full Version : Removing fuzz from suits
Jun 10, '07, 9:18 PM
I have a Catwoman suit that is going to be a nice repair/restore project. The one thing that I'm not sure of is how to remove or at least reduce the fuzzies that are all over it. I was able to pull some of them off, but I'm afraid to put any new runs/pulls in the fabirc. Any ideas?

Poke a needle through the fabric at the base of the fuzzball until only the eye is protruding.
Push the fuzzball through the eye with a smaller needle or pin.
Pull the needle and the fuzzball through the fabric to the other side where it can't be seen.

Take a very small, very sharp pair of scissors and carefully snip them off. I have tried this and had very good results. :)

Cutting them will cause runs if the fabric is stretched.

I think it's going to take a little of both. Not all of the raised spots are pulls, some are just fuzzies, like you get on an old sweater. I thought maybe a lint shaver or something might work...

You can try a sweater defuzzer, it is a battery operated gizmo that is designed to remove fuzzies from sweaters.
I've tried my wifes on a old suit I had and it worked fairly well. It would need new sharp bladed, I'd be afraid dull blades will pull the fuzzies and create runs or holes as ABMAC mentions.
