I want to describe a scene where someone has jumped out of the glass window, the windows is broken and threads of his cloths are "stuck" to broken window glasses.

What would be the correct verb for describing the threads that are left with window?

Should I say:

His cloth threads were stuck to broken glass?

Or there are better verbs and phrases?

The threads of [the victims]`s clothes remained behind, stuck to the shards of broken glass.

Something like that should work.
