I think these moths came in on a pair of thrift store trousers. That or a feather fascinator. I'm hanging the trousers in the sun, and have shaken and inspected them thoroughly. The feathers I just thought of last night, so into the freezer went the fascinator. Thankfully my silks and cottons are safe.
I don't think of my clothing as temporary, not the nice pieces anyway. I think of warm wool sweaters as friends for decades to come, and wooly trousers the same way. Even cotton t-shirts have a lifespan from day wear to PJs to rags. So to consider damage, potentially serious damage, is quite a surprising thing. No matter how careful we are, life will out. Just another proof that spring is here!
