Dear All,
Please be careful with your knitwear this spring. This is the month where all the little moth caterpillars, who have wrapped themselves in silver papery cocoons in your favourite jumpers over the winter, are feeling a bit warmer and when they emerge as moths, they will be hungry and eat right through your knitwear.
 'Moths are wankers' says Mr Zeel, who has made us these lovely badges which you can purchase here for £2 each. They are perfect for placing on or next to a hole, and quite a talking point. 
I would like to point out that Zeel means well and this exclamation does not apply to all moths, only the little silver/gold powdery ones that live in your wardrobe. Some of the other moths might be endangered, so please don't kill them.
Thank you.

A great anti "bad moth" tip...stick your lovely knitted items and precious dresses in the freezer for at least 4 hours. That's pretty much one of the only ways to get rid of these unwelcome guests. Otherwise moths in general are gorgeous just don't like the ones that eat my clothing!!!
