I've almost overcome ocd, but there is one thing I'm afraid to touch/wear.

When I touch or wear that piece of cloth, fear comes to that high point that I almost can't do anything. That is the only thing left from OCD for me. The fear comes to that point my muscles feel like a stone. Please, help me with advice.

I have the same problem with velvet. I'm not over it, but I brace myself by imagining the texture before touching it. Little steps!
