What I wore yesterday…
I don’t wear the Clyde pants much in the summer because they’re quite warm, but yesterday was in the low 80’s so I pulled them out. I was going to be home most of the day anyway, and they’re a good lounging/working at home pant; POCKETS!! But I’m always pleasantly surprised when I wear these pants. I shouldn’t be “surprised” anymore, but I still am. I love the way they fit (mostly – they do pull a bit across the top of my thighs/crotch area), and how comfortable/versatile they are. And did I mention the pockets?? The cotton twill does stretch a lot with wear though FYI.
On to the subject at hand: Moths. I spent the afternoon going through my sweaters and fall/winter items. No, I’m not switching over yet, but we’re moving at the end of September and so I’d like to get rid of whatever I’m going to before then, so I don’t have to move it.
My sweaters are okay, because after I discovered a hole in an Everlane cashmere sweater last year I started using these sachets in my sweater drawers. But my scarves are in a different location of the house altogether, not protected by sachets, and one in particular is riddled with holes.
I’d actually love to have a cedar chest (my mother has one she’s had since she was young) to store my wool/cashmere items in eventually, but in the meantime I’ve thought about lining a couple of drawers in cedar panels or something. Has anyone done that? What do you do to protect your sweaters from moths? Is it best to store them in plastic boxes?
This is relatively new to me since I’ve not had much cashmere and wool until the last several years, but I am desperate to protect my beloved sweaters and scarves from any more moth holes.
