I own this (which I keep in my overnight kit and use for travel) as well as the sweaterstone, which I prefer and use at home. The D-Fuzz-It works just fine but it takes a while and you have to be sort of ginger with the fabric---but, it's small and sturdy and travels easily. I find it easiest to use by laying the sweater out on a bed. The sweaterstone is larger (and would probably be pulverized in a suitcase) but it's a LOT (a whole lot!) faster to use, and it gives a much nicer, fluffier appearance to sweaters. I usually use the sweaterstone with the sweater ON me, which makes it much easier to get under the arms. The only small drawback to sweaterstone is you should use it outdoors or over a sink because it does make a bit of a mess.
