I though they were more silly than practical, at least for apples, but they really are quite handy for thin-skinned fruit like peaches and nectarines (I hate when some of the skin rubs off just from jostling in the lunch bag).

The sweater keeps the skin intact, or at least absorbs the juice if any does rub off.

Cotton yarn works best (or other natural, smooth fiber), because fuzzier yarns can stick to the fruit.
