That same question appears on here occasionally, and I get them too. I believe it's from over stuffing the drawer: Upon closing the drawer, if a shirt catches between the drawer and the dresser frame, it probably causes unseen damage to the fabric that doesn't show up until later, i.e. repeated washings probably put stress on the damaged fabric creating the hole.

I noticed the holes usually appear in the same spot: at the crease, so I still fold my shirts in half lengthwise, but now I roll them the rest of the way. Then I put the rolls away lined up in rows in a single layer, instead of stacking. They're easier to see and no new holes. Don't know if it's coincidence or the method actually works, but surprisingly, I can fit just as many in the drawer.

There are many possibilities in addition to Donna's response. Small holes and other damage can develop:

*during washing and dry cleaning,
*clothes moths cause holes by eating clothing made of all or part wool,
*drying clothing in the sun-as nice as the fresh air and sun feel, your clothes take a beating drying outside on the clothes line,
*the type of detergent and fabric softener you use,
*regular wear and tear-we are often blind to the rough wear of clothing,
*who knows-probably a million other reasons?

Our washer and dryer are in our basement. This past summer the basement was full of crickets! They love to eat my clothes, especially underwear! They ruined quite a few pieces this summer and fall.
