Unhappy My interlock is snagged!

My brand new sbish karate pants that I just got recently have a snag in them. Is there anything I can do? I am so paranoid its going to spread and snag worse and then I'll end up with a hole. Any suggestions?

Can you sew? I've hand mended little holes or weak spots before. I gently sew a few straight threads vertically then weave a few horizontally through them resulting in a croos hatch looking little mend. It's been very strong for me.

Can you post a pic so I can see what the snag looks like (for better advice).

Re: My interlock is snagged!

Here's a pic. Its not bad, I'm just concerned its going to get worse. Its in the seat area so obviously a place that takes a lot of wear kwim? I was thinking how you put clear nail polish on a pantyhose run, is there something like that for wool? Yes, I can sew a bit, that's an idea.

Thanks Mamas!

Maybe it's not displaying properly, but I don't see a picture.

Re: My interlock is snagged!

I definitely think you could reinforce it to help save it. You should ask Erin if she has any specific suggestions as well. She's super sweet and helpful And if you're interested, I could maybe do a wool embellishment over it to hide it, depending on exactly where the snag is. It was hard to tell from the pic exactly where/how big it is. But check out my HC if you're interested in hiding the snag after you reinforced it So sorry that happened though.

Thanks for the suggestions Mamas. Erin said it shouldn't run because its felted, so that makes me feel a bit better. And if it does eventually get a hole I can patch it. I might sew it a bit to reenforce it. Thanks!
