    thank you for this episode! i’m a weaver who uses cotton, linen, alpaca & wool for the most part. i work & demo part time in a shop located in a historic village. i’ve noticed that, YES, i do have a moth problem in my wool coasters & scarves. i handle them periodically, to check for the little cocoons. i’ve bagged up little pinecones in sachet bags & treated with a combo of lavender-frankincense-patchouli-cedarwood essential oils as well as making sachet bags of bay leaves (this was recommended to me by a friend who’s a wool grower). these last sachets were added to my shop inventory this winter after the shop closed for the season. we reopen the first of april, so i’ll be looking for more signs. have seen a few moths, little cocoons & yes, the moth poop (didn’t know what it was until you told me). our shop also has a large display of wool fabric for rug hookers, so i don’t know how we can handle the problem other than what i’m doing with my display. again, thank you & i’m glad i recently found your podcast. a weaver in Kewanee, IL U.S.
