Does any one have any ideas on how to make durable thumbholes on Merino or Powerstretch tops, these fabrics seem to be the most common tops with holes. They are great for sealing in heat! thanks...

For the price I think that it would be very hard to find better base layers than the Outdoor Research Sequence long sleeve or short sleeve tops. They are a mix of wool and polyester, and having owned...
