Wool sweaters/knits as a layering piece?

Everytime I wear wool sweaters over my dress shirt, the bits of wool always stick on my shirt, making my dress shirts look dirty in the office. I would have to use a lint remover everytime.

This is from a banana knit if quality is a concern. What are my other options? I figure Uniqlo would probably do the samething. Should I check out higher end knits or buy cotton zip-ups/sweaters as layering pieces? I figure wool is a tad warmer for the winter.

Thoughts? Thanks.ReplyQuote Multi

You don't find the bits of wool come off when you wash your shirt?

Your sweater shouldn't shed, and there shouldn't be that much friction between it and your shirt.
