Is there a product which will protect black wool from attracting so much lint?

The nature of wool - its curly, dense fibers - makes for its luxuriant, warm feel and also means it attracts other fibers, often due to static cling. While there is no spray or protectant we can cover the fabric with, we can check that the humidity levels in our homes are high enough to reduce static. Lightly brushing the fabric with fabric softener sheets can also help but be careful not to rub too hard or the fabric softener sheets may level light white streaks.
