Lots of little holes to mend

These jewelled pullovers, of very soft wool, were the main victims of the moth attack.

Now that they’ve been frozen and then washed (to kill off eggs and larvae because washing at a high temperature isn’t possible) there are more holes than I realised. Fortunately they’re all quite small.

I’ve got a reasonable wool match for the pink, but I’m going to have to mend the green with embroidery thread.

Not on a hot evening like this, though.
