I notice when I use my lint roller on my sweaters and pea coat that tons of little fuzzy's come off. And I can reroll and usually more and more will come off. Is this hurting the shirt and/or ruining it? What can I do because these things tend to get the most stuff on them and need to be lint rolled I am just worried I am ruining the shirt.

Well- pain though it is, you can pick the lint by hand. next, get a bruch. They make cashmere combs, too.

Fiber in sweaters can be loose and some will leave the sweater... part of wear. I'm not sure I'd ever use a sticky roller on a sweater. Especially cashmere.

So you would suggest using a brush? I have a magnetic one that is supposed to get lint off should I just stick to that for anything that loses fibers?

I have a nice Kent 2-sided clothes brush I got from their e-bay store. One side is rougher and one side is softer. I use this instead of a lint roller on all my clothes now.

Do you have one of these? http://cgi.ebay.com/DOUBLE-SIDED-CLO...742.m153.l1262

I'm considering grabbing one, the price tag on these is a a lot cheaper than the highly recommended CC-20's. What do you think of the brush?

I got one of these brush on ebay. They have two sides that should be soft on one side and hard on the other. But I can't tell much of a difference between the two sides' bristles. I only use it on pants and coats. I am worried it would damaged my merino and cashmere so never tried on those materials.
