I went into the stash yesterday in search of yarn for a little boy’s hat. The stash lives in two huge drawers in my built-In things-I-like-to-do unit (full of yarn, fabric, paper, etc., etc.). The drawers are wooden and well-made, and they close securely.
Pawing through the yarn revealed something weird and startling: moth damage–BIG moth damage–in exactly four balls of yarn. Those four, and only those four, had been chewed to bits. And those four, and only those four, are Jaeger Matchmaker Double Knitting.<imgsrc="/uploads/masondixonknitting/original/1X/22ccfffa20ada845e48d76918f244d9d0e847ec9.jpg" width=“499” height=“499”>
Not one tiny sign of moth incursion anywhere else in two drawers full of yummy wool.
Knitters: why? Can this be explained?
