Thanks for the tips everyone. I will get one of those vacuum sealed bags and still exploring whether to seal anything it with the sweater or not. I am used to washing wool and certainly will do so before stashing it away.
I like that freezer idea but I shut down the refrigerator when I am gone for a few months.
I also read somewhere that wools that aren't stored, but are out in the light, are less likely to get moth eaten. One possibility is just to hang it on a hanger in a bright room. No one will be here to look at any mess so no reason not to do that.
Anyway, researching possibilities. I did learn that it isn't just moth larva that eats wool fibers, but carpet beetles, which I have never heard of.
