    They are sticky willies.

    Balls from a sticky plant that grows in a lot of places. Nothing to worry about.

    This is the plant

    They're a seed. I can't remember what plant they come from but yes incredibly annoying to remove.

    Cleavers - also known as sticky grass and goose grass - these are the little seeds pods. Completely harmless (but a right pain to get out of fur!)

    We used to call them stickybobs and when I was at Junior School the boys used to throw them at our hair..... most of us had long hair in those far off days - and they were so hard to get out.
