How do I know if I have moth damage?

A telling sign would be irregular holes to clothing most commonly knitwear (usually wool, cashmere, alpaca or angora) silk or leather garments. The damage is usually caused by moth eggs, larvae and adult moths themselves.

What can I do to prevent moths?.

  • Only store clean garments
    – Moths and insects are attracted to stains or moisture present on garments (e.g. residue from perspiration, food and drink stains or body oils).
  • Store your garments in a cool dry place
    – Make sure your garments can breathe. We recommend that you don’t use plastic bags or poly for long term storage as moisture may accumulate
  • Use Moth Prevention Products
    – Connoisseur’s offer a variety of products incuding “Moth Proofing” which is applied to your garment after dry cleaning. We also recommend moth deterrents and killers which are used to preserve your clothing when stored in your cupboards or drawers.
