You could try talking to his teacher about it - a word from her might have more affect on him than from you
I sometimes think don't realise how much these little ones do take in and worry about, if he doesn't do it when he's with you so much then thats maybe saying he feels secure with you so it could well be an anxiety thing. Maybe the idea of you moving from your parents is troubling him. All you can do is talk to him as much as possible so he can air all his concerns and try to get over to him that chewing fabric isnt a cool thing to do

I've cut back the long sleeve wearing for a couple days and just made sure he has two jackets at school with him [one lightweight for indoor, one for outdoors]. I talked to the morning teachers who are two young girls about it this morning when I dropped him off and made sure they understood that its mostly happening there. I'll make a stop there on my lunch to talk to the headteacher for his class.

In the evenings they move the middle aged kids over to the big kids class for the last hour that they are open. The teachers in the big kids class seem to be far more observant and let me know about stuff before the younger girls from the a.m. do. He is two months from being of age to go to the big kids class and just has to be completely potty trained - which we are! With the acception of pullups at night for my own sanity. They are always dry. I may request him to be moved over to the older kids class where I feel he might adjust better.

I haven't told him we are moving yet - there is still a chance that she might move here. :)
