Thanks for the advice, Lee Anne. What sort of company would treat the wool? Are we talking a dry cleaner? A carpet company? All my needlepoint cushions are still in the freezer and the rugs still in their dry cleaning bags, as I'm too afraid to bring them out, knowing that the adult moths are still around and still laying eggs!

If you live in Atlanta, I use Cristomar. They are Chemists and it is amazing what they do for wool rugs! If you do not live here, call and ask for Mary tell her that Lee Anne Culpepper suggested you call,(she was on my radio show) and I know that she will give you the very best advice. 770-753-4242.

Thanks again, Lee Anne! I'm nowhere near Atlanta, but I'll give Mary a call and see what she has to say...
