Translucent Fibers from Navy Suit Jacket

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

   I recently bought a navy suit and all of a sudden there are all these translucent little fibers, like cat hairs almost, that are coming out through the fabric.   It's not the blue wool itself but when I go to pick them off, they come from under the fabric.  Anyone have any idea what this is or what to do about it?  Is it simply a matter of the construction of the jacket?  The effect is that of having lint or cat hair all over the jacket.   I can use a lint remover or a clothing brush to get many of them off but they just come back as they come from the jacket itself.  It's kind of a mystery and google searches have proved of little help.  Let me know.  Thanks

 

Dave

From what you describe, it sounds like part of the interfacing/canvas/fusing/what-have-you poking through the jacket's outer fabric. I've only seen it happen near the shoulder seam personally.

Hmmm, I've seen it now on a few suit jackets. Anyone else have experience with this?
