I wrote a step by step instruction guide to show you how to repair a hole in your merino wool underwear. This guide assumes that you know how to thread a needle and have, at the very least, some basic sewing skills.

This repair is specifically for the crotch of a pair of Icebreaker Beast underwear. This guide should help you repair any Icebreaker, Smartwool, or ExOfficio underwear; or any other merino wool gear.

Thanks Jason - SPOT ON. New LIFE to all my outdoor winter gear.


Jason...I need to shorten the sleeves of a SmartWool sweater. Do you know if I can do that, or should it be a professional project? Thanks,
