For some reason I have this weird thing about fiddling with labels on jackets and hats and so on, My mum says it's probably a sensory thing...?

Anybody else do that? Is it an Aspie thing?

I usually cut off labels and such,
especially on things that are in
direct contact with skin, for example
those labels at the back of the neck
on t-shirts

I don't do that. Heck, I like to wear tight-fitting clothing! Last week, the tags in my jeans actually dug into my skin on my hip so much, it made it bleed in two spots. I bet that'd probably about kill a lot of people here!

I do/did the exact thing all my life and wondered why others didn't do it and just were ok with it. I'm quite picky(?) in my choice of clothing. Must be natural and can't be artificial fabric. I have this quite intense, I suppose. Even thread which isn't cotton in my armpits tend to itch and annoy me.

Sorry Gismo, bit off topic.

I don't mean the ones that don't feel very nice and dig into your back and so on, the other one's that don't really dig into your skin much...

The weird thing about me is (among many other things :roll: ), if the label is pressed directly against my skin, it doesnt bother me. But if it occanisally brushes or rubs on me, I take it IMEDATALLY! Even if it means tearing the clothing a bit. I just cant stand it! :x

Only when the tag is bothering me but then again I don't feel them.
