Picture of Rex, the former owner of EFC Manufacturing Co for last 40 years. With me, Jo Murphy, new owner, and hopefully, owner for NEXT 40 years!
In 1970, a Sydney inventor came up with an idea to solve one of life's little problems - balls of wool on his wife's worn knitted sweaters. This saved her hours of picking each one off by hand.
Turns out lots of other people had the same problem and it sold millions in lots of countries around the world. The unique design with specialised materials doesn't harm the yarn, which makes it so unique.
Over the years, lots of people have tried to copy the comb, but none comes close to matching the quality of The Original Fabric Comb, known also as the EEZY Fabric Comb. Beware of cheap imitations.
I discovered this product in a Laura Ashley store about 15 years ago, and was so excited I bought one for everyone I knew. I couldn't believe that such a simple, inexpensive little tool could transform my beloved knits from "slept-in-it" to "just-bought-it."
I still have those combs today.
By chance, I met Rex, an 84 year old, recent widower, wanting to sell the business. It was perfect timing for me. In 2017, my mother and I were diagnosed with cancer, within the same month. It was a scary and confusing time for all of us, and fortunately we had good outcomes.
It was time to change my working life.
Buying the business has allowed me to own a product that I am passionate about, and believe in wholeheartedly.
I want more people to know that there's a really simple solution to their problem.
My mission is to let as many people know about this fantastic little product that will transform their knits, no need to throw them out.
