Have a condenser dryer but try, and mostly succeed, to never use it. Apart from the wasted energy, when you look at the fluff in the filter you can see it ruins your clothes, particularly cotton. Plastic clothes (sorry nylon etc) may be OK but wool or cotton - not a good idea.

Clothes racks work well, inside or outdoors.

But then you don't know how much fluff comes off your clothes when they're blowing in the wind on your clothes line.

Normally they are on a rack indoors so I would see if any fibres come out

The fibres in the tumble dryer are there because there is a system to capture them. The fact that you don't see any fibres when your clothes are drying on a rack isn't surprising and doesn't mean your clothes are not shedding fibres.

I doubt you get down on your hands and knees to check around the edges of rooms before the vacuum cleaner hoovers them up ? and you don't see loose fibres shedding as you exit the front door and the wind blows through your clothes. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean there are no loose fibres.
