Hi everyone...I'm wondering if I'm the only one who has a problem with any clothes that are poly/span or similar fabric snagging very easily? Thanks

No, but cashmere can be destroyed with a cheap bracelet (especially when you are sitting in the dark at a movie) and can't see what you are doing and you're eating popcorn and with each kernel goes a ruined area of cashmere.

My Irish Arancraft sweater gets snagged often with the raised thick pattern swirls.

There are ways to fix snags on some garments. You have to know how. It's a matter of pulling the fibers back to their original position w/o breaking them. Once broken then a hole can develop. I knew a professional weaver who would fix snags and holes in expensive garments and you couldn't even see wear the repairs were done.

I rarely wear poly span.  I don't like the feel.

@BJRich    As a rule, no problem with poly/Spandex but occasional!y I'll run across a loosely woven fabric that snags easily.  I think its the weave rather than the fabric content.

I browse a lot of tops on HSN. Several reviews I've read recently mention snagging.

I was reading through the replies before adding my two cents worth, but @Kachina624 took the words right out of my mouth. It's the weave or texture of a fabric that causes the problem.  You can't blame everything on polyester.

The several pairs of Susan Graver's liquid knit pants I own have snagged - it's kinda weird because they only snag in the back from the knee down. Won't buy them again.
