Replace the spandex cuffs on an old Synchilla?

I have a Synchilla fleece jacket from the mid to late 80s. It was my first Patagonia anything. The stretch in the cuffs is long gone, so I only ever wear it when I am feeling real sentimental. Can these be replaced?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Despite fantastic repair guides Patagonia has,

cuffs is one thing they do not cover as of yet. But it may be in the works, so I would contact them here and ask:

The synchilla pullovers last way longer than the cuffs, as long as you do not overheat the jackets, the fabric is VERY rugged. Excellent idea that Patagonia figure out a replacement for these. I have replaced them on one of my jackets 3 times. I like to sew things by hand, and do not like to dispose of functional items. If you know someone with a good sewing machine and creativity they may be able to help out, people with sewing machines can do some amazing things!
