"My cat loosened up a few strings out of my jumper."

I heard a blogger talking about her cat and how her claws get stuck in her clothes sometimes.

My question is this: Shouldn't it be 'in my jumper' in this example?

"She loosened (up) a few strings in my jumper."

Thank you.

That is not fantastic English.

That would be better. Including “up” seems needless. The choice of “strings” is odd. Threads would make sense instead.

I agree. Thank you.
