This is a step by step instruction guide to show you how to repair a hole in my 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.
You can choose any thread. Cotton thread is the best thread as it has more give than a poly or poly blend. There is no such thing as merino thread.
Step 1. Lay your underwear out flat. This is the inside view. I see that I have 2 runs and a hole. I don’t think there is a big difference if you sew on the inside or the outside of your underwear. Your stitches will be very small and you won’t feel the seam you create.
