I'm tying up some caribou caddis and the hair clings to me and the bobbin when I cut the butts. Does anyone have a fix for this. I'm thinking of rubbing a dryer sheet on my hands. Just a pita trying to remove the hair from my hands.

Dryer sheet on your hands, and run it through your hair stacker a few times too. Wouldn’t hurt to rub it around the barrel of your bobbin either. That should take care of the problem.

I heard dryer sheets need a slight amount of moisture to work well...so, if at first it doesn't work- dampen it a little and try again-I'd be interested to know if it works.

It works. I have a couple of large cans in my tying area and keep a small can in my travel kit. Just a light spray on a hunk of hair is all you need. (it's moist)
I just hold the hide hair side up and give it a light misting. Set the can down and rub the spray into the hair. Presto hair and hands - no cling. (works of lots of stuff - doesn't discolor anything)
