You can try washing it one more time with nothing else in the load. That will probably get some lint off but my guess is that you'll still have to go over it with a lint roller some.

I'm interested to hear if anyone here knows any better tips...

I would wash it again separately then dry it if it says u can do so on the label. (No guarantee on shrinkage.) If anything is still left after that I would remove it with the roller.

Also, if you have anything adhesive larger than a lint roller (left over contact paper or something) you could use that, just test a small area first to make sure it's not so sticky it harms the sweater.
