A study at Northumbria University indicates that no-contact airborne transfer of fibers can occur, and this has significance for forensic research and testimony. The article is entitled "A Study on Contactless Airborne Transfer of Textile Fibers Between Different Garments in Small Compact Semi-Enclosed Spaces" and will be published today in Forensic Science International. Forensic research proves that textile fibres can be transferred between clothing in the absence of contact

Please explain. Also why if this is such a "duh," this study has made the news.

Put on a new black shirt, walk around all day without touching anything and then report back to us how much lint your shirt is showing at the end of the day.

Do you understand the difference between lint and a single fiber?
