This isn't a long blog post - but have you ever suffered from tiny holes in cotton t-shirts and knitwear? Right in the middle at the front?! I do and I had absolutely no idea what was causing them. And it happens on new clothing too, after one wear! Sometimes the holes appear in other spots but generally they are right in the middle. I actually wrote about it on my blog a few years ago but didn't find an explanation or a solution. Until now - discover button covers!
Holé are silicon button covers, promising to rid you of those mysterious holes. I saw them on Instagram and then they got in touch, having found my original blog post and offering to solve the problem. They sent me two packets to try and two new colours to give feedback on.
Tiny holes in your knitwear and t-shirts are a result of friction between your top, your jeans button and a hard surface such as a kitchen countertop.
You will find that the holes form around the waist line, right in the front of your top and just above your hem and look like tiny little pin pricks that get bigger over time.
Holé is a soft silicone button cover that provides a cushion from friction and protects your knitwear and t-shirts from those dreaded tiny holes.
They are fairly easy to put on, when you know how, they are a bit fiddly to start with - but watch the instruction video first. Then just leave them on, they can go through the washing machine.
I received my packs before Christmas and I didn't put them on immediately. Over Christmas I wore a new (not cheap) sparkly knit from Hobbs. When I went to iron it I noticed another one of those tiny holes! I was so cross with myself for not putting the hole button covers on sooner. I have repaired it as discretely as I can. But from now on I will be putting Holé onto all my jeans!
You can buy a pack of 4 Holé button covers for £10 with free postage and packaging in the UK (international postage available too). They come in a cute packet and you get two black and two clear button covers. I have the gold to try out - I love it so hopefully that colour will be coming soon!
Disclaimer: I was gifted two packs of Holé button covers to try out, I was under no obligation to write a review. All opinions are my own.
