I like the look, feel, and comfort of these socks, but OMG! I have had them for 8 months and EVERY TIME I wash them, there's a half inch of lint in the dryer and there's lint all over the rest of my clothes. That's from six pairs of socks. Even though they're still in fine shape (How, I wonder, after they've lost so much of their substance?!) I'm going to toss them and buy new socks, because I'm tired of having black lint all over my clothes.
