I recently discovered, to my horror, that several items of wool clothing in my wardrobe had moth holes in them. Some things were beyond saving. There are a couple of damaged merino wool jumpers that will be felted and cut up to make things with.
But there was one Hobbs NW3 wool jacket that I was very reluctant to part with. It only had a couple of holes in the sleeve. So I went to John Lewis and bought two iron-on fabric flowers for a couple of quid each. And now I have a lovely customised jacket with ‘designer’ flower motifs on the sleeve.
I’m very pleased with the fact that this jacket is now wearable once again.
What about you? Have you got any tips for preventing moth attacks on clothing? Have you ever experimented with iron-on patches or other methods to customise clothing and/or keep clothing wearable after damage?
