Pulled out all the dipes to sort by size and get ready for this babe. Discovered I had moths in my wool. Lost 2 covers completely - unrepairable. Have another half dozen with small holes that should be useable still. Thankfully they didn't get to most of the stash.
So how can I repair the ones with small holes? Normally I'd darn them, but I can't use cotton thread to do it. Can I use poly? Is there such a thing as wool thread? Fingering weight yarn would work for the knitted ones, but not the woven ones.
I'm really irritated. I wasn't planning on having to replace $50 worth of wool right now.
So my other concern is how do I make sure that before I store these away again they're safe? I was thinking I needed to wash EVERYTHING again before sticking it in the cedar chest. But that's a lot of wool to wash, and it's going to take a while. Anyone have any brilliant suggestions?
