So I finally bought a Merino baselayer before christmas, an Icebreaker one.
Its been worn about 10 times, washed in a cool wool wash after about 5 or 6 wears.
Last week i noticed two tiny pin holes in the back, which got a tiny bit bigger, this morning they are the size of a thumb.
I'm bringing it back to Tiso's at lunch time, but I very much doubt i still have the receipt, but I paid for it on my credit card. It hasnt caught on anything, every time its been worn its been worn as a baselayer. Air Dried on the back of a kitchen chair or hung up in the hot press.
It was almost 70 bloody quid. I expected more than 4 weeks of use out of it.
