I thought this would be a helpful thread- list textures you either love, hate, or use to calm you down.

One that always calms me down if I'm in Sensory Overload or just stressed out is gum in my mouth. There's just something about the full feeling in my mouth combined with the chewing motion that just delights me.

I hate the feeling of lathery/sticky things, such as the liquid that you use to blow bubbles. I was helping my little cousin blow bubbles today, and he spilled the bottle on to my hands by accident... :| ... It was not very comfortable...

Love: velvet, silk, fake fur
Hate: denim, lace, wool, things with loads of seams, skirts/dresses: can feel them 'flapping' against legs, plus can feel it restricting movement, wetness..eugh!

I love things like bubble wrap and sand.

What I hate though is ice lolly sticks on your teeth *shudders* and wooden rolling pins in water!

Textures I love.

Bubblewrap.
The top of babies heads before the skull has completely formed.
Silk.
Velvet.
Sticky textures like cooking mixtures etc.

Textures I hate.

Wet textures.
Wool-it itches me like crazy!
Some labels in clothes-it depends on how long they are.

Love:
Soft stuff: Some clothes, blankets my teddy bear etc.

Hate:
Eating sticky food (eg chocolate with caramel)
Being sticky/dirty: I wash my hands like 30 times a day BUT
Creams: Spot cream, sudocream, whatever. As much as it helps I hate having it on my face.
