How to brush a mohair sweater?


#1

I’ve knitted a mohair sweater. I’d like to make it look like a fur. Can I brush up the sweater? Is there some kind of special tool or techique? I saw " mohair brush" for sale. Is this the tool to brush mohair garment to make it look "furry’, or is it for something else? Please, help!!

Yes, a mohair brush can be used to increase the “halo” of knitted mohair. It’s not going to fool anybody into thinking that mohair is fur, but it will make your sweater softer, loftier and fluffier.
