WHY do lint appear?

Lint is the loose fibers or balls of fabric that form on the surface of the material. The reason for their appearance is friction on the surface of the fabric or abrasion from rougher surfaces. Coils on clothing are considered unaesthetic.

The most frequent reason for the formation of lint on clothing is due to improper care of the clothing. Daily wear, washing and drying at inappropriate temperatures have an adverse effect on the fabric, resulting in the formation of lint.

Items made of polyamide (nylon), capron, lavsan (polyester and polyamide fibers) are particularly prone to the formation of lint. Among synthetic fabrics, acrylic is less prone to lint.
