We recommend that you check your garments occasionally to make sure that you don’t have a moth or moisture problem.
With proper care, wool can be a durable and long lasting fiber. Always care for your garment following the instructions on the care label.
Perspiration and food stains attract moths.
Brushing your jumper with a wool brush can loosen eggs, and simply popping your sweater into the freezer before you store it will kill them.
Another tip is to store your sweater in a sealed clean plastic bag. This will prevent moths from attacking it. Be very careful if using moth balls and crystals as they may be harmful to children and pets.
