How to repair hole in glove palm right thumb

I have a hole in right thumb. Can you buy some leather palm and fix it yourself? Something like this when they fix Patrice Bergerons gloves:

Any advice or experience how to fix your gloves?
thanks

If you go to your local fabric store they will have what your looking for. I use just a leather fabric and sew it with dental floss (it won't fall apart after a lot of abuse).

To make sure to help you best can you post a pic of the whole

i had a hole in the thumb area as well. covered it up really nicely, just had to use a really strong glue as the adhesive that is on the fabric is pretty weak.

for only $12 its added a couple of extra months of life to my gloves

That actually looks really cool. i have a couple of gloves with some holes in the palm. What does the palm feel like? Is it soft with a good feel or is it stiff and thick?

Is it a hole in the middle of the palm material or the stitching? I had a glove where the stitching kept coming out on the thumb and had to sew it back together...looked like hell but worked. Otherwise you could try some moleskin from the drugstore as a patch, kind of like the palm saver stuff.

I had the same hole in the glove happen to me. Thankfully it led me to buying new gloves that fit properly. But I did realize that it probably occurred from cleaning my blade of snow on the bench. Now I always use my bare hand to clean my blade.
