Any fabrics that pet hair does NOT cling to?

I saw in a post a day or two ago that someone said pet hair clings to the new Citiknits fabric. Can anyone comment about Susan Graver's Lustra Knit or Liquid Knit? Any other fabrics that pet hair doesn't cling to? Thanks!

I have 2 Papillion dogs that shed like crazy. The pet hair does not cling to most knit fabrics. The pet hair loves to stick to cotton fabric, wool rugs, and make tumble weeds of fur on my wood floors. Anyway, most slick and knit fabrics the hair does not stick.

The Travelers line from Chico's - whatever material it is, I do not know. But their pants simply do not hold onto cat hair. My boss bought me two outfits and I wear them to death. To death, I tell ya. And my cat doesn't come to work with me.

"Guys, where are we?"

I don't have any pets - but SG's lustra knit does not attract lint.

LOL. I change the neutrals in my wardrobe when I change dog colors. Last dog was black. Now I have a yellow lab. Went from brown & black skirts to white & kacki.

The "old" citiknits, Travelers at Chicos or Coldwater Creek. I had 4 cats when I was wearing those clothes and one or two hairs would stick, but mostly none at all. Other than that.....I buy clothes, furniture, car interiors to match my cat now!

I'm pretty sure that the only thing pet hair doesn't cling to is pets.

Slinky Brand for the Southern channel definitely repels both cat and dog hair. I have one of each so I can say from experience. Hope this helps!

Leather. It's very effective if you have to visit someone who has several cats and is a bit lax at house cleaning.

I have knit fabrics that get full of dog hair.

I have dog hair in vast quanities with 2 collies and 2 Aussies. I've found that the slicker the fabric, the less the hair sticks to it. I even shop for slick comforters as they get on the bed. Strangely, denim doesn't seem to attract much hair for some reason. I also find that using fabric softener in the dryer helps with hair reduction as it eliminates static electricity. I have pretty much eliminated black and navy from my wardrobe, but if I do have to wear it, I get dressed in the guest room then immediately leave the house.

Delilah you are so right! I've got a Great Pyrenees dog...she sheds all year long and has a spectacular special season of "blowing coat" in the Spring. We live with fuzz balls and "dog feathers" all over everything no matter how much I clean. I wish I had stock in the sticky roller businesses. I'm sure all the purchases I have made and the ones made by all the other owners of dogs and cats that are unable to resist decorating our homes with their beautiful fur are keeping these companies totally unaffected by the recession!

I've found that denim seems to resist dog fuzz somewhat (esp if you use a fabric softener) and not much will stick to leather. Can't say that any fabric I'm familiar with is completely resistant though. The best plan we've been able to come up with has been to try to match the carpeting, upholstery, and clothing to the color of the pets...or if you already have carpeting, upholstery, and clothing you love get a pet to match. Not very practical, but I think if we had a house with a white carpet and white furniture at least the fuzzballs would be harder to see. For now will just have to consider the white puffs floating around as lots of love tokens from my beautiful girl!

denim - I never have the problem with my golden retriever's hair sticking to my jeans!
