What on earth do I do now.
I've had to throw away 2 new wool mix jumpers today.

I have an open clothes rail in the bedroom.
What should I do to get rid and deter any more?
Thanks.

Oh dear. Lavender spray, everywhere, esp carpets (john Lewis). Moth things on hangers. Hoover everything. E.pty hoover bag immediately. They're buggers when they take hold.

Thanks.
Do moths eat other types of fabrics apart from wool based ones?

Wash everything that contains wool to kill the eggs. Put stuff that cannot be washed in a plastic bag and freeze overnight (this will kill the eggs). Get loads of those hanging moth repellents. Hoover everything you can like mad. Good luck!
