Thrum Cap on the Lady Washington

I received these pictures of one of my thrum caps a little while ago.  Aren't they beautiful?  The ship is the Lady Washington, and the pictures make me want to hop aboard.

I love this way of wearing the cap thrums inside.  That's how thrummed mittens were worn.  

Thank you so much Jeremy Brooks for sending the fantastic pictures!

Oh, No!

I came back from a week-long vacation and found this on my window sill:

I was very afraid it was a wool moth or case bearing moth that eats wool.  After searching the internet, I can say that I don't know, but I hope it isn't.  Most of my wool is now packed in air tight plastic after my last scare, so hopefully I will be fine.

Can anyone identify this moth for me?
