French Invisible Method
This type of reweaving is done on very small holes, up to about the size of a dime. It is a meticulous process in which threads are taken from an inside seam of the garment and actually hand woven in and out of all other threads in order to close the hole and make it invisible. It is time-consuming process and is thus the most expensive method.
This is the most common reweaving process. A piece of fabric from a hidden area of the garment is placed over the hole and interwoven into the edges of the hole. It also, is a difficult process and must be matched exactly with the pattern of the garment. An inweave on a solid color material may show a discernible square outline.
This type of weave can be done on knitted fabrics only, such as sweaters, double knits or wool knits. Visibility depends on the type and color of the knit and the size of the damage.
