    Go to a cleaner that deals with vintage clothing and have it cleaned. Then see if they know a good taylor who works on vintage clothing. I would just have it cleaned and leave it alone. Gary

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    I would follow Gary's sound advice. Repairs can often look worse than the damage. Plus this is really now part of the age of the item. Many items will have the odd moth nip or two by now.

    Cheer, Ade.

    As Ade stated best left alone, unless its really bad

    Wool can be invisibly mended, however this is an expensive process and as to the finished result well, I've seen good and bad. So in conclusion save your money and live the moth damage.
