I can't be 100% sure, but I do believe this sweater may have been a major cause of the lint build up in a couple of my locks at the nape of my neck. That happened eight or nine months ago and I am still just a wee bit traumatized. In my obsessive efforts to avoid future lint buildups which included many of Leighann's suggestions, I had to retire this sweater to the drawer for many many months. But when the lint topic surfaced again on LockItUp, I made a mental note of the suggestion to wear the locks up when you want to wear "lint breeding" sweaters or fabrics. Now that the chilly temps are back, I couldn't avoid my sweater any longer. Putting my locks up in the back was perfect. I can have my sweater...and wear it too!

my locs are not long enough yet but thanks for re-posting the suggestions on how to stay away from lint. Oh, and I must say your sl's rock!
When I saw this comment, I knew that it is worth an addendum. As I continue on my loc stalking, I'm starting to see soooo many ladies start with their TWA's and I just feel so proud of you all : ) So for the record: your locks are never too short to attract lint build up. Actually Locizm, my locks were about the same length as yours are now when I got my lint episode.
It doesn't matter what your length is or what your hair texture is - nobody is immune. Just stay proactively attentive, and you'll be just fine!
