someone asked me to recomend yarn appropriate for longies that doesn't collect everything from the floor, the only longies they ahve are from lion wool, which apparently picks up everything off the floor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br>
none of my longies seem to especially pick anything up off the floor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> maybe she has dirty floors <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
any thoughts?

Hmmm... I can't think of any wool that doesn't collect dust. After all they make some hand held dusters out of lambswool! Something about the fuzzyness creates a static that just attracts lint and dust.<br><br>
Now that said, I have a pair of longies for Dd that are dark brown, that I handspun and knitted and they seem fine for playing indoors and out in. I just brush Dd off with my hand and the longies look new again. (We use them for warmth, not diapering).<br><br>
My vote is to either go for longies that have patterns on them, or have flecks of dark and white, to hide any dirty/linty areas. It could also be because she simply has dirty floors...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
