Gleener – The Ultimate Fuzz Remover

We decided to kick off our weekly feature series with a product we absolutely couldn’t live without – one we think has as much place in a knitter’s toolbox as stitch markers and darning needles. We first learned of the Gleener from one of our customers shortly after we opened the store in 2010 and decided to try a few out. The Gleener had been eight years in development by a Montreal mom and had undergone many design revisions and extensive testing prior to launching. This thoughtful and comprehensive development process was obviously worthwhile as we were immediately impressed with the results we obtained and so were our customers! We’ve been stocking the Gleener ever since and it continues to fly out of our store into the hands of both new and repeat customers who return to purchase it for friends and family members.

Fuzzing and pilling is a fact of life with knitted garments, and some fibers and blends are worse than others. Regular use of the Gleener will keep your pieces looking new and will do an incredible job of bringing those you thought were ready for the bin back to life. But please, don’t take it from us, see before and after photos along with product videos on the Gleener website. And for another knitter’s opinion be sure to visit the Tanis Fiber Arts blog to see how she revived a beautiful handknit blanket that had seen better days.

For this week only (August 21 -26), receive 10% off the Gleener at Espace Tricot.
