itchy trousers!!

I was given a pair of woollen blend trousers a few weeks ago and have worn them twice without too much trouble, but on the way home tonight, I just got itchier and itchier and as soon as I walked in the door, the poor cat was treated to the sight of me whipping them off as soon as I could!!

Don't worry, I haven't got fleas, just an itchy reaction to scratchy clothes!! I even have to test jumpers before buying them by sticking my arm down the sleeve and testing my reaction! Sometimes, I don't even get that far down the sleeve before I have to snatch my arm out and rub that itchy feeling away!

There aren't many clothes that make me feel that way, but they are invariably woollen! I wonder if I'd have the same reaction to cashmere, not that my purse can stretch quite that far!

No, cashmere is much softer - I think you would be fine with that (purse allowing!)

I do pity the cat!

Me too! I do the same arm testing thing and usually put most woolly things back on the shelf! My mum stands there all confused telling me it's Not itchy - it's just woolly BUT to IS itchy - ooooh makes me scratch just thinking about it.

I have scratching problem with woolly garments too.
