Moth or Myth??

Anyone who's a knitter/crocheter/fibre artist or knows one, knows that a moth within a 5 mile radius of their house is enough to induce panic and send them running to the freezer to protect their stash of wooly skeins. So I would like to know this - if moths like wool so much, do they nibble on it on the backs of sheep?


Please tell me you thoughts on this!

No they are too busy eating all of my sweaters!

Shouldn't your cats be stopping them?

Sorry to hear about your sweaters, keep them in the freezer from now on!

Great drawing!
Tell me you did it before I rave on about how cut and well done it is.

I should add I always enjoy your backgrounds. Very creative. Very pretty. And this one with the glue bottle. Very nice.

My favourite was the one with the tree and the flitting birds.

Yes I did draw it all by myself, all my idea, just on scrap paper with a Sharpie.

Glad you like my backgrounds too!

I like feedback, how 'bout you?

was pretty sure that wool moths (Tineola biscelliella) larvae
didn't eat the wool on sheep as the larvae like dark places ( closets, drawers, under carpets, etc.) I asked the lepidoptera people to make sure and there have never been any records of wool moth larvae being found on sheep. Sheep have sheep keds which are a wingless fly sort of
resembling a tick except hairy and both the adult and larvae are on
sheep. If people saw these larvae they might think the are wool moth larvae. Hope that helps
