Is it mutter (in terms of muktza) to take a hair off your clothing (with your hands) on shabbos?


Yes, this is permitted.

The reason for this is that a hair is something of no significance at all, and therefore there is no problem of removing it.

The Gemara writes a similar concept concerning carrying on Shabbos, namely that “nitzotzos ein bahen mamash” – and the same will apply to the rabbinic concept of muktzeh.

Best wishes.
