The velcro that has failed on me has failed because the loop part was cheap and the strands pulled out. If that's what's happened, buy new velcro. Actually, if it actually were "velcro" it probably wouldn't fail like that. The stuff that fails like that is crappy fake velcro-like stuff.
I've had it fail due to the hooks getting full of crap from other pieces of clothing; in these cases I've been able to restore it by pulling the crud out of the hooks with a needle or other bit of wire.
